SAN ANTONIO – The Texas Longhorns suspended two football players Friday and sent them home on the eve of the Alamo Bowl, hours after police said they were investigating a report of a sexual assault at a San Antonio hotel.
In a press conference early Friday afternoon, Texas Longhorns coach Mack Brown confirmed that that two of his players broke team rules and have been suspended from the team.
Police were called at 2:49 am Friday to a Downtown hotel on the Riverwalk to investigate allegations of a sexual assault. The police report states that the woman claims she was sexually assaulted by one person as another watched.
An SAPD source is confirming that the two men named in the police report are two high-profile UT football players.
Sgt. Javier Salazar, a police spokesman, said only that detectives are in the early stages of investigating the case. A heavily-redacted police report says a 21-year-old woman told police she had several drinks and believed she was assaulted around 2 a.m. Friday after inviting two men, identified only as students, to her hotel room.
The incident happened here in San Antonio as the University of Texas football team is in town to face the Oregon State Beavers in the Alamo Bowl Saturday at 5:45pm.
No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.
