The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reports that a Cerritos College football player has been arrested after allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman in Norwalk late last month. See below for the full story.
Kishawn Holmes, 21, was apprehended last Wednesday on suspicion of rape and sexual assault, according to a sheriff’s news release. Holmes, a student and football player at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California, is being held on $2 million bail. Investigators said that the incident did not occur on school grounds.
Two counts of rape have been filed by the District Attorney’s Office against Holmes. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 16, according to inmate records.
This isn’t the first time Holmes has found himself in this position. According to the Los Angeles Times, the young man was accused of sex crimes in 2013 while he was a senior at Vista Murrieta High School. Prosecutors told the Times that the then-17-year-old Holmes faced multiple charges. These included two counts of rape, two counts of lewd acts with a child under 14, three counts of false imprisonment, and a count of dissuading a witness. The charges involved six total victims, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
As the cases were in Juvenile Court, the records were not made public.
Special Victims Bureau detectives are investigating this latest incident and “believe there are potentially additional victims related” to the case.
