Police were called to the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house, 1510 N. Vine Ave., early Wednesday morning in response to an attack made on a 20-year-old member.

When police arrived, the member had already been taken to University Medical Center, where he was treated for a head injury he sustained during the attack and released.

The victim told police he and some friends were drinking in his room when a yelling match began between them and some members from a nearby fraternity. He said members of Alpha Epsilon Pi and the other fraternity have an ongoing feud and often "talk shit" to each other.

He told police he became very drunk and that the last thing he remembers is people leaving his room and locking his door.

At 2:30 a.m. the victim said he woke up with his hands duct-taped behind his back and his head bleeding. He said he was able to get his hands free and walk to a friend's room. The friend took him to the hospital.

Some items were also stolen from the victim's room, including: a Glock 40-caliber handgun, ammunition, a nitrous oxide kit, credit cards and 85 compact discs.

Police said there was no evidence of forced entry to the victim's room.

Two 18-year-old students were arrested Wednesday night and charged with possesion of drug paraphernalia after police searched their room in response to a robbery.

Allyson Holtz and Cindi Sobel, who share a room in Coronado Residence Hall, allowed police to search their room after several items were reported stolen from their suite-mate's room.

Police did not find the stolen items but did locate two marijuana pipes, rolling papers, a filter and three bongs, one with a Barbie doll head attached to it.

Holtz and Sobel were cited and released at the scene.
