Loyola University Student Accused of Sex Assault

CHICAGO (AP) -- A freshman at Chicago's Loyola University has been charged with criminal sexual assault in the rape of two female classmates in their dorm rooms.

Colin Cahill Kennedy was arrested after the two 18-year-old women reported the attacks to campus police.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Kennedy gained access to the victims earlier this month by telling the same story, that he was locked out of own room and needed a place to sleep for the night. Authorities say both woman gave the 18-year-old Kennedy shelter and were later assaulted by him.

Cook County Circuit Judge Donald Panarese yesterday ordered Kennedy, who is from California, held in lieu of $300,000 bail.

Defense attorney Robert Kerr said there is a lack of DNA evidence that would tie Kennedy to the crimes.
