AURORA — Police are looking for additional victims — or possible witnesses — of three Aurora men who were charged last week with sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman.
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 Oct. 4.
Police said the charges stem from an alleged attack that occurred in the early morning hours of Aug. 11. The assault allegedly occurred inside the home where Stallworth and Pollard live.
Police said the 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 although 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 that detectives have learned that there may have been similar incidents at the home. The single-family residence is on Aurora’s west side near Aurora University. Police want 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. Their next court dates are Thursday.
Aurora University officials said the university is cooperating with police but would not comment on whether any of the men are current or former students.
According to charging 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. Pollard was listed as a junior defensive tackle on the university’s 2011 online football roster. He has no current affiliation with the team.
According to a 2010 press release issued by the university, Brown was named the school’s Lincoln Academy of Illinois’ Student Laureate Award winner for 2010. He was majoring in social work and was a student ambassador for the pre-college experience sponsored by the Quad County Urban League.
At the time of his arrest, Brown was a part-time employee at the Urban League, working as a youth development coordinator.
