Police investigating 22-year-old rape


Hays Police just are beginning their investigation into a 22-year-old rape that was reported Thursday.

The rape reportedly occurred at a motel on north Vine in March 1991.

Hays Police Chief Don Scheibler said the woman, who apparently never had reported the assault, filed the report Thursday.

The rape reportedly took place when two high-school age students were in Hays for a basketball tournament.

"We're still investigating," Scheibler said.

Once the investigation is complete, he said, the reports will be turned over to Ellis County Attorney Tom Drees to determine if charges should be filed.
