WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita State University Police Department is investigating the report of a rape on campus.

The WSU police have assigned the case to the department’s investigation unit.

The WSU police chief is off this week. However, he referred KSN to the comment from Captain Corey Herl in the WSU campus newspaper, The Sunflower.
