The Associated Press is reporting that University of New Mexico running back Crusoe Gongbay has been arrested for rape and has been suspended from the team.
The 20-year-old turned himself in to campus police.
Lobos head coach Bob Davie says he’s aware of the allegations, and suspended the junior indefinitely because of the serious nature of the charges.
KOB-TV reports that Gongbay and another man who is not a student each face two counts of second-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count of kidnapping.
The charges stem from April 13, when a female student reported she was the victim of sexual assault. Investigators say they consulted with the district attorney’s office before requesting arrest warrants.
It’s not immediately clear if Gongbay has an attorney.
