Two More Women Claim Utah Football Player Sexually Assaulted Them
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Two more women stepped forward with claims that University of Utah football player Terrell Perriman sexually assaulted them, according to court documents.
Perriman was arrested in January on charges of suspicion of kidnapping, rape and enticing a minor, according to arresting documents.
The Utah player had six more felony charges filed against him on Friday, February 21 according to court documents.
With the new charges in place, Perriman now faces first-degree felonies including three counts of rape and two counts of forcible sodomy. He also faces second-degree felony charges of burglary and forcible sexual abuse. Perriman’s also been charged with a third-degree felony charge for aggravating kidnapping.
According to a probable cause statement, Perriman’s original charges came after a 17-year-old victim reported that she met Terrell Maurice Perriman, 20, on Instagram, and alleged that he pressured her to send nude photos to him, and she, in turn, received photos that were “sexually graphic in nature.”
She reportedly met up with Perriman at his apartment where he confiscated her mobile phone and refused to let her leave, arresting documents state. He then allegedly told her he wouldn’t let her leave until she performed a sexual act on him.
The new charges against Perriman are related to two other incidents, according to court documents.
Prosecutors have asked the Perriman to be held on a bond of $750,000.
After the initial charges were filed, Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham released a statement.
“Obviously, this does not reflect the values and standards of our program and we will continue to monitor the situation as it moves through the legal process,” Whittingham said.”We are cooperating with the authorities and university personnel and will continue to assist as requested.”
Perriman played in 10 games for the Utes at the wide receiver position. The 2019 season was his redshirt freshman season.
A court hearing regarding Perriman’s bail is scheduled for March 2.
