An alleged sexual assault that has already seen one New Mexico football player arrested and charged has seen one of his teammates caught up in it as well.
According to the Associated Press, cornerback SaQwan Edwards was charged with one count of criminal sexual penetration late Tuesday night. Edwards turned himself into authorities and remains in an Albuquerque jail.
A week ago, running back Crusoe Gongbay and another 21-year-old suspect — a non-UNM student — were charged with two counts each of second-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count each of kidnapping. It was reported at the time that a third suspect was being sought; that third suspect turned out to be Edwards.
The alleged rape occurred April 13.
As was the case with Gongbay, Edwards has been indefinitely suspended by head coach Bob Davie.
In 2012, Edwards played in eight games as a wide receiver. After moving to the defensive secondary, Edwards started 11 games at corner in 2013.
