CLEVELAND — A local college fraternity is suspended while a police investigation continues.
It appeared all was quiet at the Cleveland State’s Sigma Tau Gamma house on East 22nd Street in Cleveland, Sunday.
Cleveland Police are investigating a sexual incident that reportedly took place inside the off-campus fraternity house last Thursday, during finals week.
Those we spoke to on their way to Sunday’s Commencement were just learning of the allegation.
“It’s surprising because usually if you are in a fraternity, you have guidelines to abide by,” CSU student Javante Kelly said.
The Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity describes itself as being ‘Cleveland State’s Finest Men of Principle.’
“I have some friends that are in that fraternity and they are great guys, But there are a few of the bad ones that can ruin the entire image for a fraternity, which is really sad,” CSU student Bailey Williams said.
According to a CSU spokesperson, the University suspended a Cleveland State student and the Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity on Friday. The suspension means the fraternity can not participate in any university activities.
“I think the university did what it needed to do. They suspended the student, they shut down the fraternity. They reprimanded them in the correct way,” Kelly added.
The suspension of the student and the fraternity will remain in effect, pending the police investigation.
