An anonymous Twitter account claiming to detail a gang rape has prompted an investigation at two elite Atlanta Universities, NBC News reported.

The owner of the @RapedAtSpelman account posted the first tweet on May 2, alleging to be a freshman at Spelman who was gang-raped by a group of Morehouse College students at a party.

Subsequent tweets allege reporting the attack to campus security and speaking with school officials, who took a month to get back to her.

The president of Atlanta's Spelman University urged the voice behind the @RapedAtSpelman account to come forward "so that I may offer you my full support and assistance."

The president of Morehouse said the school's Office of Campus Safety has been "activated" to fully investigate the claims, noting the information shared on Twitter was "our very first indication of this incident."

Atlanta police tell NBC Affiliate 11Alive there is no police report or investigation into the alleged Spelman rape because no one has come forward to report a crime.
