PULLMAN, Wash. - Kyle M. Schott pleaded not guilty Friday morning at the Whitman County Courthouse. Schott made his first court appearance Monday afternoon after Pullman police arrested the 23- year-old early Thursday afternoon in connection with a rape and series of burglaries that occurred on the WSU Campus the morning of September 13th. Schott left jail after posting bail Monday night.

Schott is facing one count of first degree rape, one count of burglary in the first degree; two counts of residential burglary, and one count of attempted burglary.

Pullman Police were searching for at least two suspects after three break-ins and a report of one attempted rape that occurred early Thursday at sorority houses on the WSU campus. Police believe all three incidents may be connected.

Police say around 4:30 a.m. a woman who was staying as a guest at the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority house awoke to find two men she didn't know in her room. She claims the men were attempting to rape her while she slept but when she awoke, the men fled.

The victim was not injured, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The Pi Beta Phi and Delta Gamma houses were also broken into during the night or early morning, although contact with the suspects not reported at the Pi Beta Phi house.

Pullman police continue are still searching for a man in his twenties who identified himself Thursday as "Jack" who claimed to be a "porn star" from out of state.  He is said to have a tattoo of a solid triangle on the back of his neck and also a tattoo that displayed an ammunition belt around his right thigh.

Police are working with a number of residents on College Hill to get a description of a possible third suspect who some witnesses said stayed outside of the houses to watch for police.

Sorem acknowledged the tremendous cooperation from the community, especially Ryan Lantz, president of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and fraternity member Branden Rainer.  He said both of these men encountered the suspects and were able to do some investigative work on their own and share the information with officers.

Officers also received help from the Washington State University police department and the Whitman County Prosecutor's office.
