According to two Philadelphia television stations, and as relayed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, city police are investigating a woman’s claim that she was raped by two members of the Temple football program.
The alleged sexual assault took place in the female’s dorm room early Saturday and reported shortly thereafter. A search warrant was issued in connection to the case, and the alleged victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The names of the two players under investigations have not been released.
“We received a report of a sexual assault from a student on Saturday that took place on our campus in a residence hall,” said Ray Betzner, an assistant vice president for university communications at Temple. “The investigation is currently being done by the City of Philadelphia Police Department, the Special Victims Unit.”
The Owls are currently bowl eligible at 8-3, and close out the 2010 regular season at MAC East co-leader Miami (OH) Tuesday night.
