A 19-year-old man who was raped while he was drunk, needed reconstructive surgery on his rectum after being attacked by a fraternity brother.

Reginald Stewart of Florida, attended the University of Pennsylvania, when he was allegedly raped by his fraternity brother.

Stewart, who is now 21 years old, is suing Charles Gibson and Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternity he was pledging for $450,000.

The attack took place during a recruitment party for the fraternity. The victim is also accusing Gibson and the fraternity of giving him excessive amounts of alcohol even though they were aware that he was only 19 years old at the time.

Gibson, who is from Louisiana, and another recruit, helped the victim back to his bedroom before raping the drunk teenager.

He needed reconstructive surgery after the brutal attack. The victim also claims he contracted a Human Papillomavirus infection (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease during the attack.

Gibson’s attorney said the two had sex, but it was consensual, and that his client was not responsible for giving the victim HPV.
