MIDDLETON, Conn., March 13 (UPI) -- A Connecticut college student has sued the Psi Upsilon fraternity and the Wesleyan University chapter house where she says she was raped at a 2013 party.

Cabi Chamberlain, a Wesleyan student, sued the fraternity, the Xi chapter house on the Middleton, Conn., campus and Kwame Chihombori-Quao, in federal court, the Courthouse News Service reported Thursday.

The suit claims Chamberlain attended a party, featuring a pledge strip show and was publicly raped by Chihombori-Quao as she attempted to leave. It notes "many of the pledges and attendees were underage and extremely intoxicated" and there was no form of "sober, responsible management" at the party.

Chamberlain was treated at a hospital after she contacted school security. Chihombori-Quao was expelled from the school after the report of the alleged incident, the Courthouse News Service said.

Wesleyan University is not named as a defendant in the suit.

The suit seeks damages and punitive damages for negligence, premises liability, battery, emotional distress, medical bills, pain, suffering and trauma.
