USU police arrest man accused of rape at university

LOGAN — Utah State University police have arrested a 22-year-old man suspected of raping someone on campus last year. Tyler Call was booked into the Cache County Jail Tuesday. The Logan resident is being held on suspicion of 1st Degree rape.

USU spokesman Tim Vitale said the alleged assault occurred in the fall of 2017. He could not provide details of whether or not the alleged victim was a student, or where the assault took place, citing the ongoing investigation.

Records show that Call is originally from Brigham City but was living in Logan at the time the allegations occurred.

Vitale said Call was not attending USU at the time and has never been enrolled as a student.

Call is being held on $20,000 bail. He will likely be arraigned in 1st District Court on formal charges Thursday.

Call’s arrests comes just weeks after USU president Noelle Cockett held a press conference addressing the dismissal of two facility members in the school’s music department, accused of sexual assault and harassment. She later announced the school will look to hire a new Title IX coordinator and that former Logan City Police Department Detective Scott Bodily will serve in the interim position.
