(Philadelphia) -- The ex-president of a suspended Temple University fraternity has been charged with rape in connection with a second alleged sexual assault.

A spokesman for Philadelphia's district attorney says 21-year-old Ari Goldstein has been arraigned on charges of rape and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. Bail was set at $1.5 million.

His attorney says he was involved in a "sustained" sexual relationship with the woman who says she was raped in November.

Goldstein is facing separate charges including attempted sexual assault for a February encounter in which a woman says he tried to force her to have oral sex.

Temple University officials suspended Alpha Epsilon Pi in April after at least three women said they were sexually assaulted at the fraternity house. The reports also included allegations of underage drinking and drug use.
