4 Morehouse Student Athletes Arrested for Sexual Assault
ATLANTA (Atlanta Daily World-CNN) — Four Morehouse College athletes have been accused of sexual assault, according to arrest warrants obtained by WSB and information discovered by the Atlanta Daily World.
The four suspects are two juniors, a senior and a freshman and are on the football and basketball teams at Morehouse.
The basketball players named are Malcom Jamal Frank, a junior, Tevin Mgbo, also a junior, and senior Chukwudi Ndudikwa. The named football player was Lucien Kidd, who was identified as a freshman. All of them face rape charges, except for Mgbo.
A source tells the Daily World that the reported incident happened before students left campus for winter break inside a Morehouse residential living facility for upperclassmen. The building has a total capacity of 372 students and a number of the accused athletes lived at the facility.
The alleged victim is an 18-year-old female student at Spelman who says she was held against her will inside a room at the residential community on the night of the alleged incident.
"She wasn't able to communicate or answer questions," the source said.
The event is believed to have happened in December and website Jailbase.com reports that Mgbo was arrested on April 11 for aggravated sodomy, disorderly conduct and kidnapping. No report of the arrest was issued from the college in regard to his arrest or that of any other Morehouse student athletes. The website reports that Mgbo is still in custody but lists his bond at $0.
Fulton County jail records show Ndudikwa, Frank, Mgbo and Lucien Kidd were all arrested last month, according to the AJC.
In addition to the rape charges, Frank and Ndudikwa are charged with aggravated sodomy.
Mgbo graduated from Clarke Central High School in Athens, Frank from Miller Grove High School in Decatur and Ndudikwa is a transfer from Georgia State University, according to the Maroon Tigers official website. Neither played significant minutes for the Maroon Tigers basketball team during the 2012-13 season, but all three saw playing time in the school's SIAC Championship game loss to Benedict College.
Kidd is not listed on the football team's roster on the college's website.
