A University of Utah football player has been arrested after police say he kidnapped and raped a 17-year-old girl.
Terrell Perriman, a 20-year-old wide receiver for the team, was booked into the Salt Lake County jail Thursday morning.
A statement describing the probable cause for his arrest alleges that he met the girl on Instagram and then the two connected on Snapchat. The teenager told police, according to court documents, that Perriman pressured her to send him nude photos and that he sent her several sexually graphic videos and a picture.
The girl met Perriman at his Salt Lake City apartment on Friday, where she said he trapped her in his room and wouldn’t let her leave. She told police she was afraid after she saw that Perriman had a Taser.
She asked him if she could go, according to the statement, and he said only after she had sexual contact with him. She told him she didn’t want to and that she was only 17. Perriman allegedly blocked the door, took her cellphone and covered her mouth while she screamed.
