BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An All-American sprinter on LSU’s track team has been arrested after a woman told investigators he allegedly raped her at an off-campus party.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1tHTK1n ) 20-year-old Nethaneel Joseph Mitchell-Blake was booked early Monday morning with forcible rape.

Deputies say the 18-year-old woman told investigators that Mitchell-Blake allegedly raped her early Sunday at his apartment complex. Investigators say Mitchell-Blake told deputies the sex was consensual.

An LSU spokesman said the school was aware of the off-campus incident. He said LSU has zero tolerance for any criminal activity.

It was unclear whether Mitchell-Blake has an attorney.
