Police Investigating Assault at Alpha Gamma Rho

Police responded to an assault at Alpha Gamma Rho that reportedly occurred after a doorway dispute at 2:15 a.m. Saturday morning.

State College Police Lt. Mark Argiro said the reported assault happened when the male working the backdoor at a party asked a female to leave, and the female’s boyfriend then hit him multiple times.

When females tried to break up the fight, they were hit as well. When police arrived at the house to respond to the call, they found two females — one had a swollen elbow, and the other had a swollen finger and lump on her forehead. The beaten male was found with a swollen lip and one eye swollen shut.

Argiro said police hope to use video footage to identify the perpetrator, who was described only as wearing a white tank top.

The Interfraternity Council is also investigating the incident, specifically Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity’s involvement.

“The IFC is receiving footage from AGR’s security cameras, and they will then use that film to determine if there was any wrongdoing on AGR’s part,” Interfraternity Council President Dan Combs said. “Once that investigation is complete, it will be determined if judicial action needs to be taken.”
