Monday morning, a citizen told a Riley County police officer in the 1500 block of Poyntz Avenue that he was allegedly the victim of battery at the hands of an unidentified officer at his home several hours beforehand.

The Riley County Police Department alerted the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, who agreed to investigate the claim.

“RCPD will fully cooperate with the investigation,” a statement from the department says.

This is a developing story. The Collegian will provide updates as information becomes available.
