Bills P Matt Araiza accused of gang rape with 2 San Diego State teammates in lawsuit

The others named in the complaint are Zavier Leonard and Nowlin Ewaliko.

According to the lawsuit, she told Araiza that she was a high school student and even though he could see she was highly intoxicated, he had sex with her.

Araiza won a competition to be the team’s punter over veteran Matt Haack this week.

Araiza and other San Diego State football players of raping a 17-year-old girl last October.

A lawyer for Araiza told the Los Angeles Times that his investigator spoke to witnesses from the party who contradicted allegations made against Araiza in the lawsuit.

Kerry Armstrong, the NFL player’s lawyer, told the Los Angeles Times the accusation was false, though he hasn’t reviewed the lawsuit. 

The allegations are a dark turn for what had so far been a buzzy professional career for Araiza.

The lawsuit alleges that when she was drunk at a party in October, then brought her inside to a room where she was repeatedly raped by multiple men.

No arrests have been made in relation to the accusations.
