``We have high standards that our players need to be held accountable to,'' coach Ron Prince said in a statement. ``Rashaad will be suspended and his overall standing with the program will be reassessed once the judicial system has run its course.''
Norwood was arrested twice early Sunday at the same location and charged with domestic battery, criminal damage to property, criminal trespassing and obstruction of the legal process, according to Riley County Police Lt. Kurt Moldrup.
Norwood was released after posting bond.
Moldrup said Norwood pounded on the apartment door of a woman he knew and when she ignored him, he broke a sliding glass door with a chair, entered the apartment and pushed her onto the bed. The woman, who wasn't injured, called police and Norwood fled but was apprehended.
A few hours later, police were called again to the apartment, where they found Norwood hiding under a bed. He was charged with criminal trespassing because he had been warned after the first arrest to stay away from the woman.
Norwood was second on the team last season with 36 receptions for 358 yards.
Kansas State opens the season at Auburn on Sept. 1.
