Police are looking for additional victims — or possible witnesses — of three Aurora men, one of them an Eisenhower High School graduate, who were charged last week with sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman.
Eisenhower grad Eric Stallworth, 21, and Corderro Pollard, 22, both of the 1500 block of Kenilworth Place; and Shammrie Brown, 25, of the 600 block of South Ohio Street, were charged with criminal sexual assault on Thursday.
Police said the charges stem from an attack that occurred in the early morning hours of Aug. 11 inside the Aurora home where Stallworth and Pollard live, authorities said.
Police said a 25-year-old Joliet woman and the three men drank alcohol together in Naperville on the night of Aug. 10. The woman became extremely intoxicated and ended up back at the home where Stallworth and Pollard live, police said. Police said Stallworth and Pollard had sex with the woman, but she was so drunk she could not give consent.
Brown was present during the rape and although he apparently did not participate, he did not attempt to stop the assault, police said.
On Tuesday, police said detectives have learned that there might have been similar incidents at the home on Aurora’s West side near Aurora University. Police asked any women who may have been victimized or anyone with information to call (630) 256-5500.
The three men are being held in the Kane County Jail in St. Charles on bail of $300,000 each. They are scheduled to be back in court Thursday.
According to court documents, Stallworth was taken into custody Oct. 2 at Aurora University. He was listed as a junior wide receiver on the university’s 2011 football roster but has not been affiliated with the team during the current season.
According to the university’s website, he played four years of varsity football at Eisenhower and was a team captain his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. He also played one year of varsity basketball, the website said.
University officials said the school is cooperating with police in the investigation, but would not comment on whether any of the men are current or former students.
