University of Delaware was in uproar over the past week after an assault was committed on a female student. A 20-year-old student Brandon Freyre got into an altercation with an ex-girlfriend after attending multiple parties that night.
They were fighting due to the victim attending a rival fraternity’s party. Freyre was jealous that the victim was out without him.
Friday October 8 Freyre went to his apartment with the victim to argue with her and then proceeded to assault her. He started by smashing her phone and spraying orange spray paint in her eyes. He choked her until she was unconscious and threatened to kill her. The victim managed to escape after being thrown down a flight of stairs and being held captive for hours.
Freyre was apart of a fraternity on Campus named Kappa Delta Rho that released an official statement stating that his membership was revoked from the organization. They also gave their condolences to the victim and her family.
The victim called police after escaping and was treated for her injuries. She suffered from severe cuts and bruises all over her body.
Freyre was arrested at his apartment and charged with second-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault, strangulation, terroristic threatening, third-degree assault, and criminal mischief. He was placed in jail after not posting his almost $39,000 bail.
