Arlington Man, Two Others Allegedly Raped Curry College Student
The incident allegedly took place after a dance at the Milton campus on Sunday, Jan. 20.
An Arlington man and two from Malden allegedly raped a Curry College student in a residence hall after a dance at the college on Sunday, Jan. 20, according to a report in the Currier Times, the school’s student newspaper.
Justin O. Castor, 19, of Arlington, Kensley Metellus, 19, of Malden, and Shakarus D. Semexant, 20, of Malden, were arrested Friday, Jan. 25, by Milton police and charged with aggravated rape, conspiracy to commit rape, assault with intent to rape, and indecent assault and battery, according to the report. The three men were arraigned Monday in Quincy District Court and have been released on bail, the report states.
Castor, who graduated from the Hyde School in Maine in 2011, and Metellus, a 2011 Malden High School graduate, both attended Curry College last year but not this year, according to the report. They both knew the alleged victim, the report states.
The alleged victim reported the incident on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The college sent an email alert about the incident to students Monday, Jan. 28, the report states.
A college spokesman told the student newspaper that the administration was “deeply saddened” by the incident and “100 percent focused” on continuing to support students. Meanwhile, students at the school said they’ve felt “a little unsafe” since the incident.
Semexant attended Mount Ida College in Newton in 2010 after graduating from Malden High School. Both Metellus and Semexant played football their freshman year in college.
