UConn Police arrested UConn men’s basketball player Enosch Wolf after a dispute with a woman at a UConn dorm Monday morning.

According to a police arrest report, Wolf is accused of refusing to leave the apartment when he was asked to, grabbing the hair of the woman, and pushing her head.  Police said Wolf also knocked a pair of glasses off the woman’s face with his hand.

He remained in the apartment at the LaFlesche building, and was charged with third degree burglary, trespassing, and disorderly conduct

The UConn Athletic Department released the following statement about Wolf:

Junior center Enosch Wolf (Goettingen, Germany) has been suspended from the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team following an on-campus incident early Monday morning that resulted in his arrest by university police.  The suspension is indefinite, pending the completion of the legal process and a university review process.

“We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously,” UConn head basketball coach Kevin Ollie said. “He has been suspended from the team indefinitely, until the legal and university process is finalized.

“I have spoken to the players on the team previously, and will continue to speak with them, about their conduct both on and off the basketball court. We have high expectations of our student-athletes at UConn, and I expect my players to live up to those standards.”

The university will have no further comment on the matter at this time.

Wolf is 7-foot, 1-inch tall. This season he is averaging 13.7 minutes per game, and 3.4 rebounds per game, and 3.4 points per game.

He is due in court Wednesday.
