According to ESPN, USC linebacker Osa Masina is under criminal investigation in two states — California and Utah — for separate incidents, a spokesman for the Cottonwood Heights (Utah) Police Department confirmed Tuesday.
Police documents obtained Tuesday showed authorities are looking into allegations of sexual assault in the Utah case, but no charges have been filed.
“We have an active investigation on Osa Masina,” Cottonwood Heights Police Department Sgt. Dan Bartlett said. “We are working with [the Los Angeles Police Department], who also has an active investigation.”
The Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday said it has interviewed Masina in relation to a case it is investigating but would not provide any further information regarding his involvement or the nature of the case.
The Trojans open their season this Saturday night against Alabama at AT&T stadium in Arlington, TX.
