Prosecutors have dropped assault charges against Kathryn A. Mahoney, a 19-year-old college student at Connecticut’s Fairfield University who was accused of assaulting her boyfriend.
According to reports, Mahoney allegedly struck her boyfriend — swimmer and rugby player Ben Kebbell — in her dorm at Fairfield University on March 1, 2018. Mahoney allegedly punched Kebbell in the stomach before punching him in the face with a closed fist.
Furthermore, the victim said he grabbed her (Mahoney) by the shoulders to get her to stop and then ran to a friend’s dorm room for help.
Following the attack, the victim reportedly took himself to St. Vincent hospital for a swollen and bloody nose.
However, nearly a year later in December 2018, the charges against Mahoney were dropped.
