Morehouse today issued a statement this afternoon on the arrests:

In March, there were two alleged assault incidents involving Morehouse students. After the information was brought to the attention of campus police, the suspects were identified and arrested. While we cannot speak to specifics of these cases, our policies and procedures call for disciplinary actions against students who violate our code of conduct and the law, up to and including dismissal from the College. Morehouse has a zero tolerance policy related to violence of any kind. Violence is the very antithesis of the Morehouse ethos and the values of a Morehouse Man. Morehouse College police are working with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and will continue to do so until these cases are resolved.
