Nebraska Releases Statement About Allegations Of Rape At Home Of 2 Huskers Football Stars

Police in Lincoln are investigating an allegation of rape at the home of two Nebraska football stars—quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. and wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp—early Sunday morning after the team's win at Rutgers. According to the Lincoln Journal-Star, the alleged assault occurred between 2:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at the players' house, and no arrests have been made yet.

Armstrong spoke to the Omaha World-Herald, relaying what he was told by the officers assigned to the investigation.

Armstrong told The World-Herald Tuesday police came to his home on Sunday and interviewed him, Westerkamp and another Husker player, Trey Foster. Armstrong said he arrived home at 12:30 a.m. Sunday following the Husker football game at Rutgers University in New Jersey. “We were at our house partying,” Armstrong said.

He said police told the three that they wanted to hear their side of the story about what might have happened. “After talking to us, (the police) said you guys should be fine,” Armstrong said.

“I don’t know why that person said that,” Armstrong said, referring to the alleged victim. “We’re confused about the whole situation. From what we’re hearing, everything was consensual.”

Nebraska has now released a statement about the allegations.
