Pictures posted online in disbelief by witnesses of a sidewalk sexual encounter near Ohio University could hold the key to a rape investigation after a college student told police she was the victim of an assault.
Chief Tom Pyle tells Athens News the encounter may have appeared consensual to the onlookers who took and posted photos.
Pyle says investigators have talked to the female student who made the report and the man in the photos. He says they're cooperating with police.
