Four Morehouse students – three men’s basketball players and one former football player – were arrested last month on sex charges. Junior guard Malcolm Jamal Frank, junior guard Tevin Mgbo and senior guard Chukwudi Ndudikwa were arrested on April 11. From CBS Atlanta:
According to the incident report, on March 8, Frank, Ndudikwa and Mgbo had non-consensual sex with a woman who was under the influence of an unknown substance.
Ndudikwa and Frank were arrested on rape and aggravated sodomy charges and Mgbo was charged with aggravated sodomy, kidnapping and reckless conduct.
From My FOX Atlanta:
Fulton County court documents show that the charges stem from in incident in April. An 18-year-old Spelman College student told people that she was raped by the men during a Spring Break party at an off-campus housing site.
Lucien Kidd, who was a member of the Morehouse football team as a freshman in 2010, was arrested on April 15 for a separate incident. From CBS Atlanta:
Police said in late March, Kidd held a woman down and raped her as she shouted “no” repeatedly.
Kidd was arrested on one charge of rape.
From My FOX Atlanta:
Adams, who also represents Kidd, said that the alleged victim in that case and Kidd are acquaintances and were at Kidd’s apartment.
“There’s a period of time where they’re alone in a room. She comes out, she has conversations with those same individuals after she would later allege that this assault had taken place. She waits for him, tells him to hurry up so she can get back to class and gives him a ride back to campus,” Adams said.
Morehouse has released a statement:
“In March, there were two alleged assault incidents involving Morehouse students. After the information was brought to the attention of campus police, the suspects were identified and arrested. While we cannot speak to specifics of these cases, our policies and procedures call for disciplinary actions against students who violate our code of conduct and the law, up to and including dismissal from the College. Morehouse has a zero tolerance policy related to violence of any kind. Violence is the very antithesis of the Morehouse ethos and the values of a Morehouse Man. Morehouse College police are working with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and will continue to do so until these cases are resolved.”
