December 10, 2007 The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office is looking into allegations that one or more members of the New Jersey State Police took part in a sexual assault of a college student late last week, officials said today. The prosecutor's office confirmed today it is conducting an investigation into an alleged sexual assault that took place in the early hours Friday. The alleged sexual assault took place at a residence in Ewing Township, Mercer County, authorities said. The victim is a 25-year-old female student who alleges she was assaulted by several men, including one or more members of the State Police, the prosecutor's office said. No charges have been filed. Law enforcement sources identified the woman as a Rider University student, and said she first met up with the men at a Trenton bar. Capt. Al Della Fave of the State Police said, "Once the State Police was made aware of the allegations, aggressive steps were taken to ensure full and complete cooperation with the investigation. The superintendent has directed all appropriate resources to support the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office." Davy Jones, executive director of the State Troopers Fraternal Association, said he expects the troopers will be assigned different duties as the investigation continues, but he had not been officially notified about any specific troopers who may have been involved. Jones said the troopers were off duty, so the union would not get involved if and when their work assignments are changed. David Wald, a spokesman for the state Attorney General's Office, said any trooper officially accused in the allegation "will be suspended with pay." Wald declined to say if any troopers had indeed been suspended, and declined to elaborate on the allegations.
