HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The Nassau County Police Department confirmed it is investigating the alleged hazing by the former Sigma Pi fraternity at Hofstra University.
As 1010 WINS Carol D’Auria reported, school spokesperson Carla Schuster said it will do its own investigation too, though when the fraternity’s grand council revoked its charter the school was not aware of any incidents.
“At the time officials at the university spoke to members of the fraternity who denied any wrongdoing, and we did not get any complaints from anyone about any alleged hazing,” Schuster said.
Photos of the alleged hazing of pledges appeared Tuesday in the Hofstra Chronicle — a student run newspaper. It showed one pledge in a small cage, and another blindfolded, kneeling in front of a swastika.
