LOS ANGELES —

Officials say a UCLA water polo player has been arrested after a female acquaintance reported that he raped her in a campus residence hall.

The school's athletic department released a statement Monday saying 18-year-old Hakop Kaplanyan (HAG'-op kuh-PLAH'-nee-ahn) was arrested without incident April 2, the same day the woman gave the report to campus police.

Los Angeles County jail records show Kaplanyan was released on bail two days later and is scheduled to return to court April 25.

Campus officials say Kaplanyan has been suspended from the university. He can appeal his status.

According to the team's website, Kaplanyan is a redshirt freshman from Glendale, Calif., who plays the attacker position.

It isn't clear whether he has an attorney, and a home phone listing was not available.
