CTV News is reporting that a University of Alberta fraternity is under investigation after a student was left with severe head injuries and broken jaw last week.

CTV reports that on Sept. 7, the victim was allegedly in an altercation on the DKE frat house front lawn that ended with him being beaten and hospitalized with severe head injuries. When asked, the victim directed CTV to the university for any questions.

The university told CTV that the “University of Alberta Protective Services is assisting Edmonton Police Service with a criminal investigation into an alleged assault believed to have occurred near north campus the evening of Thursday, Sept. 7. One individual, a current U of A student, suffered extensive injuries as a result of the attack. In addition to the criminal investigation, the Dean of Students is investigating the activities of a student group under relevant policies.” CTV says sources have said the group is Delta Kappa Epsilon frat house.

Charges have not been laid yet, although the Edmonton Police Service confirmed to CTV that they responded to a call regarding the injured student at the address of DKE house that night. The university would not confirm that the student group being investigated is DKE.

CTV reached out to DKE for a comment, but they refused.

DKE was suspended in 2011 for hazing, involving making pledges eat their own vomit in 2010.

More to come.
