Saada Being Held in Brazilian Jail
Friday, Aug. 5
According to the Associated Press, the alleged victims are waitresses in the Olympic Village.
Saada will be jailed for 15 days while his case is examined under Brazilian law, which means he will miss his scheduled light heavyweight bout at the 2016 Rio Games against Turkey's Mehmet Nadir on Saturday.
The 22-year-old boxer was not expected to vie for a medal in Rio de Janeiro, but his jailing ensures he won't have an opportunity to compete.
Should the authorities take the full 15 days to decide his fate, Saada will either be charged or released on the eve of the Olympic closing ceremony.
