Ex-Temple University frat president charged with attempted rape

May 17 (UPI) -- The former president of Temple University's suspended Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity has been arrested on sexual assault charges, Philadelphia authorities said.

Investigators said Ari Goldstein was arrested Wednesday in connection with an investigation into the fraternity that began several weeks ago. The charges, which include attempted rape, indecent assault and witness intimidation, stem from an incident in February.

The fraternity was suspended last month as a part of a months-long investigation into sexual misconduct, underage drinking and drug use. Goldstein, 21, was removed as president when the investigation began.

"We are, obviously, deeply troubled by the charges leveled at this young man," Jonathan Pierce, a spokesman for Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, told WPVI-TV. "We believe in due process but there is clearly no place for this behavior in our organization and, if proven true, I would expect the individual to be permanently expelled from our fraternity."
