Police say five students were arrested following a Wednesday night campus party.
Two students from Sweet Briar College apparently shaved the pubic hair of a W&L student at the party.
Then in retaliation, three Sigma Nu frat members allegedly abducted the women and tried to do the same thing to them.
Police charged the two women with sexual battery.
The men were charged with abduction.
W&L's faculty approved a hazing policy not long ago.
While this is not considered a hazing incident, members of a neighboring fraternity fear this latest prank will lead the administration to restrict fraternity activities.
