Villa under investigation for alleged sexual abuse on June 24

Buenos Aires ( Associated Press) — Colombian striker Sebastian Villa, one of the stars of Argentine club Boca Juniors, was called for questioning next Friday, where he is being investigated for the alleged rape of his ex-girlfriend.

Villa must appear before prosecutor Vanessa Gonzalez on June 24, who called her in the framework of an investigation into a complaint that Rocio Tamara Doldon filed against the striker in May, in which he said he sexually assaulted her and her hit. According to the complainant, the incidents took place on June 26, 2021 at the player’s home in a private neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

The investigation, during which the accused is informed of the crimes against him and can defend himself, will take place at the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Gender Violence, located in the city of Esteban Echeverria and on the outskirts of the Argentine capital. In subsequent days, the player may be prosecuted within the framework of the case if there are sufficient elements to believe that he has committed a crime.

Gonzalez formally charged Villa with sexual assault on May 19 of alleged sexual abuse. Although Forward is likely to refuse to testify, his lawyer has said he will.

The call for an investigation came after the prosecutor requested the player’s arrest, which was rejected by a judge of the Guarantees believing that there was insufficient evidence against him.

Dolden testified before the court, among other details, that Villa “abused me, initially from the front (on my back), and almost without letting me breathe, turned my face down, because of screaming and crying. I was running out in the middle of the wind.”

He said that in the days to come, he was pressured by the players and his team not to tell what happened. She also said that she was offered $5,000 for her silence and she did not accept it.

Villa defended himself against the allegations on the social network, saying that “the wolf will always be bad if the tale teller is Little Red Riding Hood.”

The Argentine club, for its part, reported that it had been made available to justice and the complainant. He did not take any disciplinary action against the striker.

The striker also faces a trial that will begin on September 19 as a result of a complaint of sexual violence and coercion filed by another ex-partner.
