Three men allegedly raped a 20-year-old student of the College of the Holy Cross in her Worcester dorm room Saturday morning after an intercollege dance on campus.

None of the men attend Holy Cross, but they did go to the open dance Friday night at the Hogan Campus Center as guests, said Worcester police Sergeant Kerry F. Hazelhurst.
At least one of the men attends Becker College and may have learned of the dance through a consortium of colleges in Worcester.
The girl, a junior, told police that she met Edward Kingori, a 21-year-old from Worcester, at the dance and that they exchanged phone numbers.
At about 3 a.m. Saturday, Kingori called the girl and she invited him and two friends to her dorm room, she told police. The three men then raped her, the girl told police.
The student called Holy Cross campus police Saturday morning, and Worcester police were notified. Police said they were able to trace the phone number Kingori gave the girl, and she identified him as one of the rapists. He was arrested Wednesday.
Later, police also charged Bizmark Obeng-Mensah, 21, of Worcester, and Alie Samura, 19, of Boston. Samura attends Becker College in Worcester, and Kingori and Obeng-Mensah attended the college at one point. Police believe they may have learned of the campus dance from the intercollege network.
The three men were each charged with three counts of rape. Kingori and Obeng-Mensah were arraigned in Worcester District Court yesterday. Information about their pleas was not available last night.
Samura is expected to be arraigned today.
Holy Cross officials did not return calls for comment last night, but released a statement to media outlets that read: "This particular event at the Hogan Campus Center was open to Holy Cross students, students of the Consortium of Worcester Colleges, and accompanied guests who were signed in. The crime was swiftly investigated by Worcester police together with the College's Department of Public Safety. We are providing the victim with all available support and care, and are actively reviewing this very serious incident."
