A football player for Iowa State has been detained on suspicion of raping a woman while she lay motionless on stairs in his home after pushing her so forcefully that she cracked her spine.
Iowa State linebacker Aidan Ralph was arrested Wednesday for allegedly raping a woman at his home in Ames, Iowa back in December.
According to the Associated Press, Ralph was charged with felony sexual assault and misdemeanor domestic violence in relation to the assault. The woman in question reportedly told police Ralph accused her of cheating and pushed her so hard into the stairs that it fractured her spine. Unable to move, she said she asked Ralph to call an ambulance but he “lay on top of her and raped her as she cried and begged him to stop,” per the Associated Press.
He is currently being held on $11,000 bond and will have a hearing regarding the case on May 15.
An Iowa State spokesperson has stated the redshirt sophomore from Chicago has been indefinitely suspended from the team.
