UNH men's hockey goalie DeSmith suspended after assault arrest
Durham Police Department received a report at 12:59 a.m. on Aug. 31 from a young woman who stated she was a victim of assault, according to Durham Deputy Chief Rene Kelley.
Officers responded to the call and arrived on scene near Mill Road in Durham where they came into contact with the victim and DeSmith, said Kelley.
After interviewing the victim and witnesses, the officers on scene determined that the victim was assaulted by DeSmith. According to Kelley, DeSmith had to be physically restrained as he was being taken into custody.
DeSmith, 23, was brought to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover to be evaluated before he was taken to Strafford County jail. According to Foster's Daily Democrat, DeSmith was held on a $5,000 personal recognizance bail. He was charged with one count of simple assault and one count of resisting arrest.
Kelley said that the victim and DeSmith knew each other.
"The University of New Hampshire is aware of Casey DeSmith's arrest," the university said in its official statement. "The University takes the allegations very seriously and will always act to ensure the health and safety of our community.
The university said that it "will treat this report with the seriousness that it deserves and in a manner consistent with (its) handling of similar cases involving any UNH student."
DeSmith has been suspended from the men's ice hockey team pending further investigation, according to the university.
DeSmith will be arraigned Oct. 2.
A Rochester native, DeSmith has been the Wildcats' starting goalie since his freshman season in 2011. Last year, he posted a 20-16-0 record in net and three shutouts and helped the Wildcats reach the Hockey East Championship game where they fell 4-0 to UMass Lowell.
