Stillwater police are investigating a series of alleged sexual assaults involving an Oklahoma State University fraternity.

Stillwater police Capt. Randy Dickerson said Friday police are investigating sexual assaults involving students in the FarmHouse fraternity.

OSU spokesman Gary Shutt said Friday the university held student conduct hearings against a student in response to the allegations. Five other students came forward to make claims against that student in the hearings, Shutt said.

Shutt declined to name the student or say what action the university took against the accused student at the conclusion of the hearings, citing Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act restrictions.

Fraternity President Nick Jordan would not give details of the alleged assaults, but said the fraternity turned over the matter to the university after becoming aware of the alleged incident.

“None of the alleged actions occurred in the house and the individual is no longer associated with us,” Jordan said.
