Indiana University Probing Alleged Anti-Semitic Slurs During Fight Outside Frat House

A fraternity at Indiana University has been suspended following a brawl that allegedly involved anti-Semitic and racial slurs, university officials said.

Police at the 48,000-student university and the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating the physical assault that took place late Friday, school officials said in a statement released Sunday.

“Indiana University condemns bias or violence in any form and will hold individuals and organizations accountable,” the statement read. “Diversity and inclusion are core values that we expected to be shared by all IU students.”

The fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, has been placed on an organizational cease-and-desist order, meaning it cannot host or participate in any activities as a probe into the assault and alleged slurs continues, campus police said in a statement.

“A search warrant was executed at the frat house and the victims have been interviewed,” the statement reads. “We are aware of allegations of bias statements made in this case and are investigating fully.”

At least one of the victims alleged that anti-Semitic and racial slurs were made during the fight, university spokesman Chuck Carney said.

“We are trying to determine the facts on this, so right now just an allegation,” Carney said in an email.

Security camera footage of the melee was later posted to Twitter, where several men can be seen attacking one or two victims after they were apparently thrown out of the house.

The brawl apparently broke out between two frats after Alpha Epsilon Pi members tried to enter a party at the Pi Kappa Phi house, the Indiana Daily Student reported.

Someone can be heard saying “he’s a f—ing douche” and “f— that kid” on the footage, the student newspaper reported.

Members of Alpha Epsilon Pi, which is a traditionally Jewish fraternity, were involved in the fight, a university spokesperson told the newspaper.

In a statement to The Post, a spokesman for Pi Kappa Phi’s national organization said its investigation of the fight has found no evidence of anti-Semitism.

“Pi Kappa Phi values diversity and inclusion and does not condone violence,” spokesman Victor Tran said. “The investigation is ongoing and we are cooperating with authorities. If any members are found in violation of rules, they will be held accountable.”

Ten percent of Indiana’s Pi Kappa Phi chapter identifies as Jewish, Tran said.
