Police: Florida university president robbed attempting sex encounter

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

The president of Keiser University’s Daytona Beach campus has been suspended after authorities say he was carjacked while attempting to pick up two women for a sexual encounter.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 60-year-old Matt McEnany told police he stepped out of his car to speak with two women Sunday night when he was attacked from behind by a man. He was then shoved to the ground, and the man and women drove away in his car.

Police chief Mike Chitwood said that though McEnany told a 911 operator he was picking up two friends who needed a ride, he intended to have a “sexual rendezvous” with them.

McEnany’s car was found in a parking lot early Monday. A Keiser spokeswoman said he’s been suspended pending an investigation.

McEnany has not been charged with a crime.
