Wheeler says he couldn’t disclose any other details.



Our newscenter understands that the student was mobbed after he was allegedly found in a compromising position with another male student.



A you-tube video shows the alleged gay man being kicked, punched and slapped by two male security personnel in a room while a female security guard watched with a piece of board in hand.



The security officers had reportedly taken him to the room to shield him from the mob.
