Our Father prayer reportedly stop a Villanova football player Elijah Solomon from sexually assaulting a female | Solomon was arrested

Villanova LB Elijah Solomon arrested
Villanova linebacker Elijah Solomon was arrested for attempted sexual assault, and forcible compulsion.

A 19-year-old Villanova University football player is facing charges after authorities say he tried to sexually assault a female student inside his dorm room in 2019.

Elijah Solomon is sitting in jail right now with a $250,000 bail. Elijah Solomon is a linebacker for Villanova, and is facing charges of attempted sexual assault, forcible compulsion and unlawful restraint.

The report is very disturbing. Solomon reportedly contacted a female to come over to his residence and when the female arrived he tried to force her to have oral sex with him.

The reports continue to say that he pinned her to the bed, demanding oral sex. The female began saying the ‘Our Father’ prayer outloud, in which Solomon then stopped and kicked her out.

There are some flaws in this case as well. According to the police reports, she told a resident assistant what happened, but she refused to press charges or file a report on Solomon at that time.

According to the report, Solomon would not stop harassing her, and continued even a year later.

Villanova University released a statement to CBS Philadelphia which reads, in part: “Solomon has been removed from campus. There is no place for sexual misconduct of any kind on Villanova’s campus or in our community. These acts constitute the deepest affront to University standards and will not be tolerated in any form.”
