Buffalo Bills rookie punter Matt Araiza and two others have been accused of gang raping a 17-year-old girl last year in a lawsuit filed in San Diego County Superior Court.

The lawsuit involves allegations against Araiza and two of his former San Diego State teammates. 

The lawsuit accuses Araiza, who was 21 at the time, of having sex with the then-high school senior, who was under the age of consent in California, outside at an off-campus party held at his residence during the early hours of Oct. 17, 2021.

The suit states Araiza then brought her inside a room where at least three other men were, including Leonard and Ewaliko, and that she was repeatedly raped for about an hour and a half until the party was shut down.

Dan Gilleon, the attorney who filed the lawsuit, says the Bills were made aware of the allegations as recently as the end of July, when he emailed the team's representation.
