Report: Duke not currently investigating Rasheed Sulaimon
On Monday morning, the Duke Chronicle, the university’s student newspaper, published a story that claimed Rasheed Sulaimon had been accused of sexual assault by two different Duke students.
On Thursday, after two different press conferences filled with no comments from head coach Mike Krzyzewski, Sports Illustrated published an update that reports that Duke does not currently have an investigation open into the allegations.They did, however, attempt to investigate when they became aware of the initial allegations, per SI:
The university looked into allegations against Sulaimon at some point last year, SI.com has learned. The alleged victims did not file an official complaint to the school or the local police department. It is unclear if they participated in the investigation.Sulaimon was notified when an investigation was opened, and then told weeks later that the matter was closed and the university did not have enough information to proceed.
Duke athletic director Kevin White has publicly defended how Duke handled the allegations.
