The Campus Police issued a bulletin yesterday about a rape that took place Wednesday night in a parking lot near Central Square.

The bulletin, which contained information provided by the Cambridge Police, stated that a person was raped at 8:20 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot at Prospect Street and Bishop Allen Drive. The rape took place on the odd side of Prospect Street, a side street adjacent to Central Square.

Cambridge Police have descriptions of the two suspects. One was described as a black male, 25 years old, 5'8", 140 lbs., black hair, brown eyes, thin mustache, wearing a yellow T-shirt and black jeans.

The second suspect was described as a black male, 29 years old, 5'8", 185 lbs., black hair, brown eyes, with a goatee, wearing black sweatshirt and cream-colored jeans. Both suspects had bicycles.

Campus Police Captain John E. Driscoll said that the CPs posted the bulletin in order to help Cambridge Police with the search for the suspects. Driscoll would neither confirm nor deny that the rape victim was an MIT affiliate.

The Cambridge Police could not provide any additional information on the incident.

Any information regarding the suspects or the crime can be directed to Cambridge Police Detective Joseph McSweeny at 349-3370 or 349-3301.
