WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The 23-year-old victim in the incident has provided KAKE News with a response to Thursday's incident, which resulted in the arrest of 21-year-old Teddy Allen.

The victim was in a previous relationship with the current Wichita State University men's basketball player. She said the keys have also been returned.

Her written response is as follows:

“The events that occurred early Thursday morning were a miscommunication. Alcohol was involved and we both made a series of poor decisions that led to even bigger poor decisions. I am not injured, battered, nor was I harmed. This is an unfortunate situation. I have no further comment on what I will do moving forward.”

The City of Wichita prosecutor's office said the arraignment has been continued until July 29th. 


A member of the Wichita State University men's basketball team has been arrested for theft and criminal damage to property.   

Wichita police records show 21-year-old Theodore "Teddy" Allen was arrested early Thursday morning following an alleged incident that happened in the 1800 block of North Doreen, near Rock Road and 21st. 

A 23-year-old woman told officers Allen came to her residence and battered her, damaged her cellphone and took keys belonging to another resident. Officer Charley Davidson said Allen and the woman had been in a relationship.

The WSU sophomore was taken into custody at an apartment near campus and booked for misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property (domestic violence) and petit theft. 

The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office says Allen was later released on $3,500 bond.

Allen transferred to Wichita State after playing his freshman year at West Virginia. Wichita State Athletic Director Darron Boatright released the following statement: 

“We are aware of the situation regarding men’s basketball student-athlete Teddy Allen and are gathering additional details in order to gain a broader understanding of the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”
