A second Olympic boxer has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, according to the Associated Press.

Jonas Junius, Namibia’s flag bearer, has reportedly been jailed for attempted assault on a housekeeper in the Olympic village.

That’s an eerily similar story to Morocco’s Hassan Saada, who was arrested before the start of the competition. Sanda was jailed and disqualified, and the same seems likely for Junius.
