*Police said Tuesday they are investigating a report of a sexual assault at the residence of Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. and wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp, reports the AP.
Officer Katie Flood said a 20-year-old woman went to a Lincoln hospital Sunday afternoon and said she had been raped. The woman told police she knows the suspect, and Flood said that person was contacted.
At press time, no arrests had been made.
Armstrong told the Omaha World-Herald that he, Westerkamp and another roommate have spoken with police.
”After talking to us, (the police) said you guys should be fine,” he told the newspaper. He also told the World-Herald he didn’t know why the woman went to police, adding, “From what we’re hearing, everything was consensual.”
Nebraska issued a statement saying it was aware of the allegation and was cooperating with law enforcement officials and the university’s Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.
Nebraska played Rutgers in New Jersey on Saturday, and Armstrong said he arrived at his house about 12:30 a.m. Sunday. According to the police report, the alleged rape occurred Sunday between 2:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
