Prosecutors said Olsen texted a woman and threatened to kill her. They said he raped her, punched her in the face and also threatened to kill himself, wrapping a phone charger around his neck.

The accuser called the police and was treated for injuries at a hospital. The report said she had bruises and scratches.

Olsen has been suspended from UNC-Charlotte athletics.
