California College Baseball Team Members Questioned in Alleged Rape of Teen at House Party

Members of a Santa Clara County college baseball team and others are being questioned in the alleged rape of a teenager at a weekend house party, sheriff's deputies said Tuesday.

There have been no arrests or names released, but sheriff's officials said they have interviewed several baseball players and other students from De Anza College who attended the party.

The victim was allegedly assaulted early Sunday at a residence in the Burbank District, an unincorporated part of San Jose, said Sgt. Ed Wise. She was not a student at De Anza, Wise said.

De Anza spokeswoman Marisa Spatafore said the school was "deeply disturbed about the allegations."

The college canceled Tuesday's home baseball game and held a team meeting instead of its regular Monday practice.

"The team's attention needs to be cooperating with the investigation, not playing a game," Spatafore said.

Any team members who don't cooperate with the investigation will face sanctions from the school, and anyone involved in the incident will be suspended, she said.

"We don't really have anything to say because nothing is proven," De Anza infielder David Abraham Jr. told the San Jose Mercury News. "Everything is alleged."
