YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: What Do I Do About My Rapist "Friend" ?

I thought it would be obvious what to do in this situation, but it is not.

One of my friends cut off contact with another mutual friend a while ago. Recently, she let me know that the reason was because he raped her one night at a party. I am shocked and absolutely disgusted. No one else in our mutual group of friends knows. Obviously it's not my place to say anything if the girl does not, but it sickens me to see him remaining a loved member of our friend group. What do I do? Do I myself cut off contact with him without explanation? Do I talk to him about it? Do I yell at him and tell him how much I hate him now? It's not like I've heard his "side" of the story or what he has to say. I thought it would be obvious what to do in this situation, but it is not :( .
