All about Ilyes Ait and Phi Kappa Psi Alleged Sexual Assault and Rape Suspect

Must Read

For a second night, protests are planned outside the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Kansas, after a female undergraduate student was allegedly raped at a party on Saturday, Sept. 11.

Monday night, hundreds of students gathered at the home located in the 1600 block of W 15th Street, chanting phrases like, “rape is violence.”

“I was like ‘Oh no, what’s going on?’ And that’s when we found out that a girl was abused, sexually assaulted,” Ana Davalos, a sophomore at KU said.

The Lawrence Police Department, along with members from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and KU Public Safety, maintained a law enforcement presence in the area for the duration of the protest, to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

No arrests were made, and no injuries were reported.

Reports of pepper spray being used on students at the protest were circulating, but Lawrence Police said it was done by private security personnel in advance of police arrival.

The news about the alleged incident circulated around on social media, prompting students to act.

“It was like an empowering thing for me at least because I know like every girl there had a story or like a good chunk of them,” Abigail Nylen, a freshman at KU said.

Deputy Chief James Druen of KU’s campus police told KSHB 41 that two on-campus rapes were reported in both 2019 and in 2020.

When it comes to incidents at sororities and fraternities, the Lawrence Police Department handles those.

According to the University of Kansas Crime Map, the victim reported the incident to campus police who then referred her to Lawrence Police.

Students on the KU campus said they want actions taken and answers.

“We just wanted to say that you’ve been doing this for decades, like my parents have stories about this and they were in college like 3 decades ago, and it was like we’re done, this is enough,” Nylen said. “We’re going to take a stand and say ‘Hey, KU this is your move now and we’ve shown our voices, we’ve said what we needed to say and you need to do something about this.'”

Who is Ilyes Ait Ku Phi Kappa Psi?

Ilyes Ait is a Phi Kappa Psi undergraduate who is also a rape suspect. 

Even though the organization has not revealed the name of the suspect yet, rumors have been surfacing that his name is Ilyes Ait Ku. He is reportedly an undergraduate at the University of Kansas. 

As confirmed by the Phi Psi, the suspect is an undergraduate. According to their statement, the investigation is going on. But the pressure from the public is extraordinary, so, they will probably have to haste it. 

People have been gathering outside their office in thousands, chanting the alleged rapist’s name and how he should be punished.
