A woman has reported she was raped at a North Dakota National Guard camp near Devils Lake, according to the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department.

The department's call log shows the woman went to the emergency room at Mercy Hospital in Devils Lake, which alerted the sheriff's department shortly after 4 a.m. July 11.

The alleged victim told deputies the incident happened at Camp Grafton and "that she remembers going back to her dorm then waking up sore," the log states.

Camp Grafton, which sits five miles south of Devils Lake, is a training center run by the North Dakota National Guard.

The sheriff's department would not confirm if the parties involved in the alleged incident were soldiers. Speaking generally, Lt. Col. Rick Smith said those at the camp are National Guard members.

Smith referred other questions to the sheriff's department.

Deputy Sada Sobolik said her department and the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation are looking into the allegation, but declined to comment further because the investigation is ongoing.

The call log did not provide the names, ages or potential ranks of the parties involved.
