At about 11:20 p.m. March 19, 2016, Wheaton police officers responded to Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield regarding an incident that involved members of the Wheaton College football team.
The victim reported receiving serious injuries when he was attacked by five members of the team and left in a field with his limbs secured with tape.
"He was attacked by the suspects in a dorm room, where he was subdued with tape," Wheaton Deputy Police Chief William Murphy previously said in an email. "His arms and legs were bound and a hood placed over his head. During this [time] his shoulders were injured. They dropped him off in a nearby baseball field."
A second person allegedly was hazed as part of the incident but chose not to press charges, Murphy said.
