LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - A former high school football star from Dracut has been held without bail as a danger to society for allegedly wearing a ski mask to follow a woman home from a gym and sexually assaulting her.

At the conclusion of a two-day hearing Tuesday, a judge ruled there was enough evidence to hold 19-year-old Bryant Tuff on charges of assault with intent to rape and assault and battery.

Prosecutors say Tuff assaulted a 20-year-old woman outside her Lowell home in February after following her home.

Although he has not been charged, prosecutors say he may have followed three other women home from the gym.

The Sun of Lowell (https://bit.ly/1kHT4Bo ) reports that Tuff’s attorney pointed out that his client has an alibi and does not match the description of the assailant.
