Police: Man attempts to rape teenager in college library

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A Collierville man was arrested after sex-related crimes were reported inside a college library.

Memphis Police say the 17-year-old victim was fondled before the suspect attempted to rape her inside the library at Christian Brothers University.

Olumide Adedipe, 21, is behind bars and held without bond Friday. He is charged with both sexual battery and attempted rape.

According to an affidavit, the victim told officers Adedipe touched her inappropriately, exposed himself to her, and caused her to fear being raped.

The victim said he stopped only after she screamed. Police say this happened Thursday afternoon in the Plough Library on the Christian Brothers University campus.

Adedipe has been arrested several times before, including twice on the University of Memphis campus for simple assault and theft of property.
