VILLANOVA, PA. (AP) - Villanova forward JayVaughn Pinkston was involved in an altercation that led to an assault report early Sunday, police said, while the school acknowledged it was reviewing what happened.

Villanova issued a statement Monday saying it had been “made of aware of an incident” involving the freshman, but offering no details. The school said it had been in contact with Upper Merion Township authorities and was gathering information.

Detective Sgt. Jeffrey Maurer said Upper Merion police responded to Bryn Mawr Hospital at the request of another police agency early Sunday morning for an assault report involving this case. He said there is an investigation into an altercation in a residential area of the township and that there have been no arrests.

“By the end of the week well have an answer,” he said. “This isn’t something we’re going to rush to make a decision on.”

While the review is ongoing, the school will make no additional comment. Villanova coach Jay Wright was not immediately available for comment.

Pinkston, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was named a McDonald’s All-American at Bishop Loughlin. He was named New York’s Player of the Year as a senior.

No. 6 Villanova opens the season Friday against Bucknell.
