Four more Southeast students charged in assault

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Four more Southeast Missouri State University students face criminal charges in connection with an off-campus assault.

Three of them are SEMO football players.  Antonio Garritano, 19, Derek Gohn, 19, and Jared Goodson, 22, all play football for SEMO.

Pili Showers, 21, does not play on the football team.  All four face burglary charges.

Garritano also faces an assault charge.

Authorities charged a fifth suspect, 18-year-old Brett Jones, with assault and burglary in January.

Investigators say all five men broke into a home on Dunklin Street in December 2009.

According to police, Jones and Garritano assaulted the victim.  The victim told police he was thrown on a coffee table and blacked out at some point during the night.

SEMO Athletics released a statement Tuesday afternoon.   "These individuals will immediately be withheld from all athletically-related activities until we have had a chance to review all available facts in this case.  We will have no further comment since this is an on-going police investigation.  Any other inquiries about this investigation should be directed to the Cape Girardeau Police Department."
