Two University of Ottawa hockey players charged with sex assault

Police say the assault involved a 21-year-old female victim and allegedly took place in a hotel early on February 2.

Police in Thunder Bay have charged two University of Ottawa hockey players in connection with a sexual assault that took place when the team was in the city for a game in February.

Police say the assault involved a 21-year-old female victim and allegedly took place in a hotel early on February 2.

They say they were made aware of the incident by a third party, which triggered an ``extensive investigation'' that involved police in Thunder Bay and officers in Ottawa.

The police investigation was separate from a probe by the university, which resulted in the firing of head coach Real Paiement and the suspension of the program through the 2014-2015 season.

Guillaume Donovan, 24, and David Foucher, 25, are charged with sexual assault.

The two men are set to appear in court in Thunder Bay on Sept. 30.

      @dama You don't have to be that old or smart to know not to rape. Calling them young and stupid diminishes the seriousness of the crime. I shoplifted when I was "young and stupid".
      And, yes, let's worry about the lives of the accused rather than that of the victim. Crawl into the 21st century.
