4 more Bryant University students charged in on-campus assault; police fault excessive drinking

Bryant University The Fulmer Cup

SMITHFIELD — Police here have arrested four more Bryant University students in connection with Sunday’s on-campus assault.

Jarret Martin, 19, of 81 Wachusett St., Franklin, Massachusetts, is charged with breaking and entering, and disorderly conduct.

John Amaya, 20, of 45 Beck Ave., Rye, New York, and Jack McNeil, 19, of 435 Holly Rd., Marshfield, Massachusetts, are charged with breaking and entering, simple assault, disorderly conduct and conspiracy.

Sarah McBrien, 20, of 1 Christopher Lane, Scituate, Massachusetts, is charged with breaking and entering and disorderly conduct.

The arrests stem from the incident at Bryant University on Sunday morning when students allegedly broke into a townhouse.

Three student athletes were arrested earlier this week in connection with the incident.

Martin was taken into custody without incident on Tuesday and later appeared before Bail Commissioner George Lazieh. He was released on $1,000 surety bail.

Amaya was taken into custody Wednesday, and appeared before Magistrate Joseph P. Ippolito. Bail was set at $25,000 personal recognizance.

McNeil and McBrien were taken into custody Wednesday, and appeared before Bail Commissioner Peter Hopkins. Each was released on $1,000 surety bail.

While Bryant University has announced a review to determine whether the altercation was precipitated by a bias incident, the Police Department said its investigation, so far, has not found any credible evidence that one had occurred.

“What this investigation has clearly revealed is that a day of excessive alcohol consumption and several smaller confrontations during the previous day, culminated in the early morning assaults on April 7, 2019,” the police said in a statement.

The investigation is ongoing and will be sent to the attorney general’s office to determine if it is appropriate for additional persons to be charged.
