A member of Wichita State's Final Four team is being investigated for a sexual assault that allegedly occurred over the weekend.
According to the Wichita Police Department, officers are investigating a sexual assault that involves a now-former basketball player. The alleged crime reportedly happened off-campus at a current player's home sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Police said others were at the home at the time, but that no other players, current or former, are under investigation.
The alleged victim is a 20-year-old woman, but she is not a Wichita State student. A police report states the 20-year-old woke up while the assault was happening. She went to a hospital where lab tests were conducted.
No arrests have been made.
Wichita State Athletic Director Eric Sexton released the following statement;
"Wichita State University has been informed of the police investigation. We are mindful and respectful of all parties involved. Wichita State University and the Athletic Department take this situation very seriously, and are cooperating with the Wichita Police Department. At this time it is important to let the investigative process take its course."
"The University will have no further comment regarding this matter at this time."
