Fair or foul?
The investigation is believed to be centered on an incident in which six male athletes — some of them naked — allegedly assaulted a student employee at Pomona College’s Rains Center while stealing a photo off the wall around 9 p.m. last Saturday, according to Claremont Police Department logs and sources told about the episode.
The student who was allegedly assaulted declined to comment on the incident due to ongoing investigations into the matter.
Campus Safety called the CPD for assistance at 9:15 p.m., according to CPD logs, and CPD is investigating the incident. No arrests have been made so far.
During the incident, the six students entered Rains and removed a photo of a runner from the rival Pomona-Pitzer men’s track team from the Rains wall. At least one student “held down [the employee] when he [attempted] to stop them,” according to CPD logs.
The CPD log said the students were running naked throughout the 5C campuses, with Campus Safety in pursuit.
