In the early morning hours of November 23rd, 2013 a female SUNY Plattsburgh student reported to
her friends on campus that she was possibly drugged and sexually assaulted at 147 Brinkerhoff St.,
the AXP Fraternity House. They assisted the victim in filing a report at SUNY PD. At about that
same time, a friend of the alleged victim, Daniel Colflesh, went to the area of 147 Brinkerhoff St. to
await friends to confront who was responsible. While waiting outside the fraternity house, Nicholas
Simmons, Luis Munoz and other members of the fraternity allegedly assaulted Colflesh knocking out
two of his teeth, fracturing his jaw and then rifling his pockets stealing an electronic cigarette.

Shortly after the assault on Colflesh, a group of approximately eight SUNY Plattsburgh students
arrived at the AXP Fraternity house and a fight broke out between AXP members and the 8 students.
City Police arrived and the students dispersed.

Detectives were called in and began investigating the gang assault and sexual assault. A search
warrant was obtained for 147 Brinkerhoff Street and evidence was collected. Since that time,
Detectives have been conducting investigations into both incidents.

As of today, Plattsburgh City Police have arrested Nicholas C. Simmons, 20 and Luis M. Munoz, 21,
both SUNY Plattsburgh students, charging Simmons with Assault in the second degree a class “D”
felony and Munoz with assault in the second degree and robbery in the third degree, both class “D”
