Creighton basketball star Maurice Watson Jr. turned himself into Omaha Police Sunday afternoon in response to an arrest warrant. Watson was booked for 1st-degree sexual assault and then transported to the Douglas County Jail.
A police report says a 19-year-old woman told investigators that she was sexually assaulted during the early morning hours of February 4. The victim identified the suspect that sexually assaulted her as Watson.
Creighton university officials announced last week that Watson had been suspended from all athletic-related activities since Feb. 13. The 23-year-old senior point guard suffered a season-ending knee injury last month.
