NEW INFO: ECU Student Accused Of Making Up Rape

University police say a woman who reported that she was raped in an ECU classroom building has been arrested for making up the attack.

The alleged attack happened on June 24th in a bathroom at the Austin Building on campus. The woman told police her attacker possibly had a knife.

Shadia Moore is charged with filing a false police report.

Police says after an extensive investigation, including SBI lab analysis, it was found there was no assault. The 21-year-old Moore was arrested Monday on the misdemeanor charge and released on a $1,000 bond.

“Our primary concern is the safety of the ECU community-students, faculty, staff and visitors,” ECU Police Chief Scott Shelton said. “We take every reported crime seriously, but at the same time, we must be vigilant for false reports that just cause unnecessary concern and worry on the campus.”

The university says Moore is still a student, classified as a freshman. She has a December 1st court date.

    Actually, ECUs admission standards have risen quite a bit. ECU has very good programs, highly recognized in the state of North Carolina, and nationally. So you cant really use that in your argument Really?.

    Blah blah blah. This stuff is everywhere you go and is not ECU specific (although this is the latest story from there). Be aware of your surroundings, pay tuition, go to class, graduate, and leave North Carolina. I'm working on the last but I am proud to be a graduate from ECU. Bum deal on the fear that was instilled by this nut but move on. ECU is a great school no matter what [the NCSU & WF] clowns say and I would gladly send my kids here. My two cents, that's all I have after paying the seemingly ever increasing tuition each year. But money well spent. :o)

    This girl doesn't even deserve to be on the college campus period to make up a lie like this. It's as the little boy who cried wolf and when if it does happens, nobody would take her serious, she would be highly upset. Why go to college if you're going to make up a dumb lie as serious as this. Not smart enough to be in college I see.

    First of all, like any college town, Greenville wouldn't be Greenville without ECU. However, Blackbeard, you seem to be pretty cocky about a college with one of the lowest admission standards around. Also, have you been to every college campus in America? Really? That's pretty amazing!

    okay, I wonder how many of you "critics" are out there posting that have never seen a minute of college life. I'm sorry, but the ones always posting negative stuff about ECU up here are completely immoralized, and need to GROW UP! Seriously, just because you uneducated ADULTS never went to college, just stop being jealous, and face the fact that you cannot comment on a ECU mishap due to your inability to get into college. Stop, breathe a second, and leave our campus alone. Because this is for sure, if you haven't already heard, EVERY COLLEGE CAMPUS IN AMERICA IS LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
