The Seattle Times is reporting on Wednesday night that two Washington football players are being investigated for an alleged assault that took place on campus following the Super Bowl on Sunday.

According to the Times, the names of the players has been redacted in the Seattle Police’s report on the matter. No arrests were made, but KIRO TV is reporting that freshman wide receiver Demore’ea Stringfellow is one of the players in question.

According to police reports obtained by KIRO 7, a white car pulled up behind a man as he walked along NE 55th St. after the Seahawks won Sunday night.

Two people, including one the victim identified as Stringfellow, hopped out of the car and asked him if he was a Seahawks fan before pushing him against some bushes.

Then they began hit him with “multiple punches” to his “left eye, chin, and cheek” before the hopped back in the car and took off, according to the report.

The victim searched the UW football team roster online and found the two players he says attacked him.

According to police reports, the same two UW football players were involved in a separate “scuffle” near Sunday night’s celebratory bonfire on campus. One was wearing a “Broncos hat.”

Washington officials gave no comment to the Times on Wednesday night.

Stringfellow played in eight games and caught 20 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown for the Huskies last fall.

    That may be true. But the most important thing in college sports is getting the very best players in order to win the most games and make it to BCS Bowl games.

    Say what you want about “character,” but that’s all anyone REALLY cares about.

    Funny that he went to the football website right away skeptical of this but who knows if its true sad story but if he just assumed an athlete did this cause it was a black guy shame on him why go directly to the football website

    This report leaves out a lot of details. By man, the article means college student. Also, he was walking his girlfriend home. He knew what players to look up because he heard which ones got in a fight at a Seahawks celebratory bonfire earlier that night. And might I add, one of them knocked a girl out cold in the midst of the “scuffle.”

    Just another PUNK getting a free ride and has no right being there. Sad that cause you can ball gives you carte Blanche to do what they want. Most of the time the schools will cover this stuff up. Like I say if they can’t ball they will PROBABLY BE IN THE PENAL SYSTEM. If it looks like and Duck and quacks like a duck. THUG

    If it turns out to be true, hope they enjoy their junior college careers, they won’t be on the Huskies, they will be on the street so fast their heads will be spinning.
