The victim was not a UGA student, according to police.
Ippisch was arrested Nov. 26. His bond was denied in December. A judge ruled that he was likely to pose a risk to the community.
Channel 2’s Tony Thomas was in Athens after Ippisch’s arrest, where police confirmed reports of the attack.
“About 3:15 a.m., we took a report from a 21-year-old female indicating she had been sexually assaulted at the Hedges bar,” said Officer Geoffrey Gilland, with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department. “The alleged assault happened somewhere in the bar. I don’t have any information at the exact location,” reports WSB.
Students told Thomas they were horrified at the accusations.
“It’s pretty disgusting, honestly. It’s pretty scary ’cause I know a lot of people, especially young girls, that go in there,” college student Cole Harper said.
