In a recent development in the alleged rape case against San Diego State University football players, a witness has claimed that kicker Matt Araiza was present during the alleged incident. The incident is said to have taken place on November 30, 2020, when two female students accused the players of sexually assaulting them at an off-campus party.
According to the witness, Araiza was in the same room where the alleged rape took place. However, it is not clear if he was directly involved in the incident or if he saw what was happening. The witness has stated that they informed the police about Araiza’s presence, but it is not known if the police interviewed him at the time.
The case has been ongoing since December 2020 and has seen several twists and turns. The football program was suspended for over a week in the aftermath of the allegations, and several players were suspended or dismissed from the team. The case is still being investigated, and no charges have been filed against any of the players.
The allegations have sparked outrage on and off the campus, with protests and demands for stricter action against sexual assault. San Diego State University has faced criticism for its handling of the case, with some accusing the administration of not doing enough to address sexual assault on campus.
As the investigation continues, the allegations have once again brought the issue of sexual assault in college sports to the forefront, with many calling for a stronger stance against such incidents.
