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.
