SALT LAKE CITY — A former University of Utah football player who was arrested last month on suspicion of raping a 17-year-old now faces three counts of rape and several other felony charges.

Terrell Maurice Perriman, 20, is charged with three counts of rape, two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of forcible sexual abuse, one count of aggravated kidnapping and one count of burglary.

Perriman was initially arrested Jan. 30 after police say he raped a 17-year-old girl who he met over social media. At the time, he was listed on the university's football roster as a redshirt freshman wide receiver. He no longer appears on the roster.

One of the new cases allegedly took place just two days before the incident he was originally arrested for. Court documents state that Perriman invited a woman to his residence, asked her when she was going to quit "teasing" him, forcefully removed her clothes and raped her despite her physically resisting and telling him she did not want to multiple times.

Another reported sexual assault took place between October and December 2018 when, according to court documents, Perriman was at a woman's residence when he asked her to give him oral sex. Police say she told him no multiple times before he forced her to perform the act. Then, about one month later, Perriman reportedly texted the same woman to ask if she had a condom he could borrow. She said she did, and when he arrived handed it to him through the partially opened door. He then pushed the door open and entered her apartment and room, where he again forced her to perform oral sex.
