WACO (May 1, 2012)—Baylor defensive end Tevin Elliott, 20, who was suspended Friday for an unspecified violation of team policy, was arrested Monday on a warrant charging sexual assault in an incident that occurred on April 15 at a campus-area party, according to an arrest warrant affidavit released Tuesday.

Elliott was released from jail at 2 p.m. Tuesday after posting a $10,000 bond.

According to the affidavit, the victim told officers she went to the party at the Aspen Heights apartments at 3344 South 3rd St. and while there, met Elliott.

At some point, Elliott asked her to go outside with him and although she said she didn’t want to go, she told officers he was persistent, the affidavit said.

As they went outside, the affidavit said, Elliott “picked up the victim and took her to the pool area and volleyball court area where she was sexually assaulted twice” telling Elliott on several occasions “she did not want this.”

The victim later returned to the party and told an unidentified witness about the attack.

That person took her to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center, the affidavit said, and police were called a short time later.

Head Coach Art Briles announced Elliott’s indefinite suspension from the team on Friday, but didn't elaborate and said he would have no further comment.

Over the past two seasons, Elliott started 11 of his 25 games.

He had 63 tackles with 17 tackles for loss and eight sacks.

Elliott didn't play in the Alamo Bowl in December because of a knee injury, and didn't participate in spring workouts that ended earlier this month.
