Jahshaun Anglin: Soccer player, 20, accused of sex assault on Florida college campus


Jahshaun Anglin, a 20-year-old United Soccer League player in Miami, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman inside a classroom on a Florida university campus, according to the cited reports. Anglin, a Miami FC midfielder and a member of the Jamaica national team, was arrested on Tuesday, Sept. 28 after he allegedly shoved his hands down a woman’s pants and then ejaculated on her, authorities reported.

The woman claimed the couple was in the classroom at Florida International University’s Modesto A Maidique campus when Anglin allegedly asked her to perform oral sex and she refused. An arrest report claimed that Anglin then put her hands on the woman’s pants and sexually assaulted her. She tried to leave, but the athlete had her immobilized on the ground and he ejaculated on her body. Anglin then left the victim when someone in a neighboring room entered and found her crying on the floor, according to the report.

Jahshaun Anglin has played in 15 games for Miami FC in the USL Championship League this year. He refused to speak to investigators after his arrest. Team officials said in a statement on Wednesday, September 29, that they were cooperating with police in the ongoing investigation. Anglin made his debut for the Jamaica national soccer team in 2020 against Bermuda and has played three games for the team since then. A representative of the Jamaica men’s team said they were aware of Anglin’s arrest but would not comment on the matter.

Anglin appeared in court Wednesday on a sexual assault charge and pleaded not guilty to the charges. Bail for him was set at $ 10,000, reports say. He was no longer listed as in custody on Thursday, September 30, according to online records. A judge reprimanded Anglin during his appearance in court on the felony charge, saying, “In America, it doesn’t mean no.”
