Ex-president of suspended frat charged in attempted rape

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The former president of a suspended fraternity at a Philadelphia university has been charged with attempted rape and indecent assault.

Temple University officials suspended Alpha Epsilon Pi late last month after at least three women alleged they were sexually assaulted at the fraternity house. The reports also included allegations of underage drinking and drug use.

Former chapter President Ari Goldstein was arraigned Wednesday on eight charges. Philadelphia District Attorney spokesman Ben Waxman says the charges stem from allegations made by one victim.

An attorney for Goldstein says the 21-year-old denies the charges, adding that he's a good kid.

Waxman says the office asked for $2 million bail because of the seriousness of the allegations. He declined to comment on whether more arrests would be made.
