Two members of the X-Men football team have been charged following a sexual assault investigation at StFX.
Jonah Williams, 19, of Halifax has been charged with three counts of sexual assault against two different women; Tyler Ball, 18, of Truro faces a single count of sexual assault.
The pair played defensive back for the X-Men- Williams was in the team’s starting line-up; Ball wasn’t.
Both men have been removed from the team’s roster on the StFX athletics website; they’re scheduled to appear in Antigonish Provincial Court in January.
RCMP say an 18-year-old told them she was sexually assaulted on campus earlier this month; that led a 19-year-old to come forward and report two separate cases of sexual assault on campus.
