Manhattan police investigate possible hazing at high school
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Manhattan police are investigating a report that two Manhattan High School students were injured during an apparent hazing ritual involving members of the football team.
The Manhattan Mercury reports police records showed the alleged battery occurred Wednesday evening at Bishop Stadium. No other details have been released.
Brad Schoen, director of the Riley County Police Department, says the incident will be investigated but a current homicide investigation involving the department will take precedence for now.
School officials say they have not been able to determine exactly what happened, so they called police on Friday. Police records say there are “multiple suspects.”
District officials say they will wait to take any action until after the police investigation is complete.
