Second Olympic Boxer Reportedly Arrested on Rape Suspicion in Rio

What's going on? Two apparent attempted rapes in the Olympic village and the Olympics have barely begun. Has this been happening for decades and been covered up, or is this a new phenomenon perhaps related to the easy availability of pornography? Is it possible that some people can't distinguish between pornography and reality?

Namibian boxer and flag bearer Jonas Junius has been arrested for an attempted sexual assault on a housekeeper in the Olympic Village, Brazilian media report.

Police in Rio have said that Junius attempted to grab and kiss the housekeeper and also offered her money for sex, Brazilian online publication globo.com reported.

Inspector Veloso from Recreio police station in Recreio dos Bandeirantes has said that unless Junius is bailed, he will be transferred to the high security prison in Bangu by the end of today, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Gabriel Elizondo, an Al Jazeera reporter in Rio, tweeted that “Junius is expected to be transferred to Rio’s Bangu prison later today.”

The 22-year-old is scheduled to fight in the round of 32 against Frenchman Hassan Amzile on Day 6 of the Games.

His arrest comes after another boxer, Moroccan Hassan Saada, was arrested on suspicion of raping two women in a room in the Olympic Village on Friday.

Police confirmed that Saada will be jailed for a period of 15 days pending a full investigation, ruling him out of competing at the Games.

I'm glad to read that both these boxers will likely miss their Olympic events. Brazil must send a message to Olympic athletes that such behaviour will cost them their chance to participate in the Games.
