A reported sexual assault was attempted at the Delta Chi fraternity house at 1236 Monte Vista Place between Saturday at midnight and Sunday, March 6 at 1 a.m.

According to a Cal Poly emergency notification that was sent on March 7, the perpetrator held the female survivor down with the intention of assaulting her. The survivor was able to fight off her attacker and get away.

The reported incident occurred during a registered Cal Poly event.

Delta Chi president and civil engineering senior Steven Pollock said the university has not notified the fraternity about an investigation.

Delta Chi fraternity members only know the information included in the campus-wide emergency notification email — nothing more, Pollock said.

Though the survivor chose not to report the incident to the police, Pollock said Delta Chi will be cooperating with any potential requests from law enforcement.

At Monday night’s Interfraternity Council meeting, Pollock asked other greek life officials to refrain from spreading rumors about the incident.

“I know this looks bad on all of us,” Pollock said in the meeting.

Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Kathleen McMahon redirected all questions to university spokesperson Matt Lazier, who offered no additional information regarding the investigation.

Coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Life Kathryn O’Hagan did not respond to a request for comment on Monday.
