A Southern Methodist University fraternity is suspended after a student claimed he was hazed.
SMU police say a student reported he was assaulted and held against his will at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity Sunday evening. The school police blotter lists it as an aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, personal hazing and unlawful restraint.
The same fraternity was under scrutiny last year after one of its members was accused of sexually assaulting a student at the fraternity house.
The university issued a statement:
"SMU takes seriously any allegations of student misconduct. SMU Police are vigorously investigating this case. Pending results of the investigation, SMU has placed the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity chapter on temporary deferred suspension, which prohibits the chapter from hosting any activities, among other sanctions. Because it is an active investigation, no other information is available at this time."
