A former football player at Wayne Hills High School in Wayne New Jersey faces rape charges in North Carolina.
The suspect is Kevin Olsen, a 22-year-old male who attends the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and plays quarterback for the school’s football team. His brother is Greg Olsen, a star tight end for a team in National Football League (NFL).
According to Charlotte authorities, the suspect was drunk when he repeatedly raped his 23-year-old girlfriend. The attack was classified as a domestic violence incident because of the relationship between the suspect and the victim.
The victim talked to police and said that Olsen became very upset when the pair got separated while out for a night of drinking in Charlotte, NC. The pair later reunited at Olsen’s apartment, only for things to reportedly turn violent. Olsen allegedly threatened to commit suicide, then threatened to kill the victim.
The suspect also allegedly raped the victim before she was able to escape from the apartment. She went to Carolinas Medical Center – University to get medical treatment for her injuries.
After being placed under arrest, Olsen was taken to a local jail and held on a bond of $103,000.
