Stepped-up patrols at OH complex after rape report

FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP) — Southwest Ohio authorities are stepping up security in the area of an apartment complex with student residents, following a reported rape.

A Greene County sheriff's official says extra patrols are running in the area of Province Apartments in Bath Township. A 20-year-old New Carlisle (CAHR'-ly-uhl) woman says she was raped by two men early Sunday after leaving a party at the complex.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1bTH3ST ) reports that authorities say the apartment managers are cooperating, although surveillance video hasn't helped at this point. Ohio investigators are studying physical evidence.

The large complex has students from different schools. Authorities aren't sure whether those involved in the reported rape are students.

It is near Wright State University, which sent alerts to students to make sure they're aware of the assault report.
