Loyola University student accused of rapes

By

A freshman at Chicago's Loyola University has been charged with criminal sexual assault in the rapes of two classmates.

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 on Tuesday 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.
