INDIAN ISLAND — The Penobscot Indian Nation’s Boys & Girls Club and police are investigating allegations of what they call “inappropriate behavior involving a youth club member and another youth.”

The club’s board of directors issued the statement Wednesday. A sign on the door of the club’s facilities late Wednesday states that the club is temporarily closed.

Benjamin Collings, chairman of the board of directors, tells the Bangor Daily News “the accused youth is prohibited from attending any programs or activities” held by the club until the investigation is complete.

Penobscot Nation Police Chief Robert Bryant referred questions to Penobscot Nation Tribal Chief Kirk Francis, who did not return calls.

The Boys & Girls Club on Indian Island was founded in 2000 and serves both members of the tribe and nonmembers.
