Matthew Maldonado, 26, and Nicholas Schultz, 21, reportedly bumped into the 20-year-old victim at a club in Washington, D.C. According to the report, the three know each other from their time training at Lloyd Irvin’s Martial Arts Academy in Camp Springs, Md.
Maldonado and Schultz then reportedly offered to escort the Fairfax, Va., woman to an instructor’s house so that she would not drive under the influence of alcohol. Instead, they allegedly took her to the parking garage of a church and allegedly raped her repeatedly as she fell in and out of consciousness. The alleged act was caught by surveillance cameras in the garage, according to the report.
Team Lloyd Irvinis one of the more famous MMA gyms nationwide, known for its close link with Alliance MMA in San Diego, Calif., and production of multiple top-tier talents. According to the team’s official website, the gym is networked with more than a dozen affiliated schools in the eastern United States.
Sherdog.com was unable to immediately reach Irvin for comment on Friday, but WJLA News reportedly acquired this statement from Irvin following the alleged rape:
“We are surprised and saddened by the report of this terrible attack. Our prayers and thoughts are for the support of the victim … It must be emphasized that the horrible act described in police reports had nothing to do with our business or our employees.”view original article >>
