Alleged Rape Victim at UNC Said She Was 'Treated Like a Suspect'
The 19-year-old University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student who accused a football player at the school of raping her on Valentine's Day of this year has spoken out, saying she was treated "like a suspect" during the sexual assault investigation.
Sophomore Delaney Robinson, who said she is revealing her identity to ensure that a similar incident doesn't happen to another student, said in a statement that she was "further victimized by the people who should be working to keep us safe."
After she was allegedly raped, Robinson said she immediately went to the hospital to report the alleged rape and had a rape kit taken. At the hospital, she said she was asked "humiliating and accusatory questions" by investigators, such as what she was wearing, what and how much she drank and how much she ate that day. Investigators also delved into her sexual history, she said, asking whether she "led him on" and if she "had hooked up with him before."
Allen Artis, the 20-year-old student accused of raping Robinson, was immediately suspended from the football team after he was charged with misdemeanor sexual assault, per university policy, said Assistant Athletic Director of Communications at UNC Kevin Best. Artis can only be reinstated after the athletic director, head coach and university officials agree it is appropriate.
Artis is a junior from Georgia and played in 12 games during the 2015 season, according to the UNC website. It is unclear if he has obtained a lawyer.
Two years ago, the university adopted a revised comprehensive policy on discrimination and harassment, including sexual assault and misconduct, which was developed based on recommendations and broad input from the campus community and outside experts, it said.
"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our students and takes all allegations about sexual violence or sexual misconduct extremely seriously. These matters are complex and often involve multiple agencies including law enforcement," said Vice Chancellor for Communications and Public Affairs Joel Curran. "While the University always tries to complete an investigation as quickly as possible, our priority is to ensure that the factual investigations are complete and conducted in a fair and thorough manner."

UNC Football Player Allen Artis, Accused of Raping Student, Turns Self In: Sheriff
A football player at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who has been accused of rape turned himself in to authorities Wednesday morning on misdemeanor warrants.
Allen Artis, a 21-year-old junior linebacker, was subsequently released on a $5,000 bond, the Orange County District Attorney's Office told NBC News.
Delaney Robinson, 19, said the assault occurred on Valentine's Day of this year at an on-campus apartment while drinking with friends. She said she did not know her alleged attacker.
Neither Artis nor his attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday. At a court hearing in the afternoon, a judge agreed to set another date for Sept. 29.
