WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police are investigating a woman’s allegation that she was sexually assaulted by a member of this year’s Wichita State men’s basketball team.
Police Lt. Doug Nolte said Thursday the player has not been arrested or charged. Nolte did not name the player but said he has no eligibility remaining, meaning he’s technically a former player.
The incident allegedly occurred over the weekend at the home of another Shocker basketball player. Police said the 20-year-old woman — who is not a Wichita State student — called 911 to report she woke up Sunday morning while the suspect was raping her.
Wichita State athletics director Eric Sexton issued a statement saying the university has been informed of the investigation. Sexton says the school and the athletic department are cooperating with police.
