University student in South Korea arrested for sexual assault and falling death of a classmate


Police in Incheon, South Korea, arrested a 20-year-old freshman at Inha University for allegedly raping a classmate and knocking her to death.

The the suspect was arrested around 2pm on Friday after the 20-year-old victim was found dead at 3.49am. She was reportedly found naked with blood on her head, mouth and ears. The Incheon District Court issued an arrest warrant on Sunday due to “risk of destruction of evidence or flight” and the suspect was brought in for questioning.

Upon arriving at the Incheon District Court, reporters asked the suspect if he had anything to say to the victim, to which he simply replied, “I’m sorry.”

According to police, the suspect had been drinking at a bar with the victim and another student. He said he drove the victim back to the school and at around 1.30am CCTV footage showed the two entering the school building.

The suspect admitted to sexually assaulting the victim inside the school; however, he denied pushing the victim out of the building’s third-floor window. Police are currently investigating to determine if the suspect pushed the victim. Additionally, investigators believe the suspect may have tampered with evidence as the victim’s clothing was found far from the crime scene.

Inha University announced Monday that the student will be expelled based on the results of the investigation. The school also held a meeting to discuss increased security measures, including security and patrol staff. The school will increase the number of CCTV cameras and emergency alarms on campus and is considering changes to building entry protocols, such as banning entry to all buildings from 12 p.m. to 5 a.m.
