A Sigma Nu fraternity member has been charged for an attack that left another Georgia Southern student with a fractured skull, Statesboro police said. 

What’s new: William Kroymann ,20, was charged with aggravated battery for the incident that took place between 1:00-1:30 a.m. on Jan. 13, said Statesboro police in a press release on Friday. 

  • Kroymann is a member of the Georgia Southern chapter of Sigma Nu, confirmed Jennifer Wise, GS director of communications.
  • The victim is also a Georgia Southern student, said Wise.
  • “Based on surveillance video, detectives believe there are multiple independent witnesses to the event that have not yet spoken to law enforcement,” quote from a Statesboro police statement.

What we know: According to Statesboro PD, a verbal altercation between a passerby of the Sigma Nu house and members who were standing outside the house caused Kroymann to approach the victim, who was on the sidewalk, and hit him.

  • The blow caused the victim to collapse and hit his head on the pavement, resulting in a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain. 
  • A student who said they witnessed the incident said the victim was walking with another man wearing the letters of a different fraternity on the row. The witness asked not to be identified. 
  • The victim was taken to East Georgia Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Memorial Health in Savannah. The victim has since been released and is recovering at home, police said.
  • Attempts to contact Sigma Nu members at Georgia Southern for comment were unsuccessful.

Sigma Nu Fraternity’s national office in Lexington, Virginia, released a statement that Kroymann’s fraternity membership has been suspended pending further investigation.  

“As a fraternity, we don’t condone the actions of the fight whatsoever. That’s not what we like to think we do, that’s not who we are. We want to build men, bringing them in as young men and turn them into ready for the future,” WJCL TV quoted Sigma Nu president, Andrew Scott, as giving this statement.

Kroymann was being held in the Bulloch County Jail on a $15,000 bond. As of Friday evening, he was no longer listed as a current inmate on the jail website.
