Towson University and Baltimore County police say they are investigating an alleged hazing incident in which a student was hurt.
University spokesman Ray Feldmann said in a statement Wednesday that the incident occurred off campus and privacy issues prevent officials from sharing more details.
Police spokesman Cpl. John Wachter said in a post on the department's blog that the student was injured in the incident and is now hospitalized. He says detectives are working to determine how and where the student was hurt.
Feldmann says the university takes allegations of hazing seriously and deals with them quickly. Tau Kappa Epsilon International Fraternity spokesman Alex Baker said in a statement that the chapter at Towson has been temporarily suspended. Reached by phone, local chapter President Kevin Sodee declined to comment.
