GENEVA - The national Kappa Sigma fraternity says it learned of an alleged sexual assault at its Geneva chapter July 13 - the same day The New York Times ran an investigative piece about the case.

“Although none of our members were directly involved in the incident, we are nonetheless deeply concerned,” Mitchell Wilson, executive director of the national organization, said in an email. “We will work with Hobart College officials to thoroughly investigate whether any Code of Conduct or social policy violations occurred in conjunction with the chapter function mentioned in The New York Times article. We are addressing this situation at the present time.”

The New York Times interviewed a William Smith College freshman - she was identified only as Anna - who said she was sexually assaulted by three Hobart football players. She said the initial assault took place during a party at the Delta-Phi Chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity house on South Main Street.
