INCHEON-- Police on Friday placed a university student in Incheon under emergency arrest for allegedly causing a female classmate to fall to her death from a building after raping her.
The 20-something male suspect, a freshman at Inha University in Incheon, west of Seoul, is alleged to have caused the victim's death, when she apparently fell from the third floor of a campus building earlier in the day.

The victim, who was in cardiac arrest at the time of the discovery, was taken to a hospital but later died. Police plan to conduct an autopsy.
The suspect reportedly confessed to the allegations during police questioning. Investigators plan to seek a formal arrest warrant for him.
