Two Mercyhurst freshmen charged with sexual assault

Two Mercyhurst freshmen have been charged with felony sexual assault stemming from an incident on campus back on Nov. 14, according to a report.

Goalie Jordan Tibbett and forward Kyle Just were arraigned before Erie 3rd Ward District Judge Tom Carney yesterday morning.

Erie police have accused Tibbett and Just of forcing a woman to perform a sex act on them in an apartment on the Mercyhurst campus, according to the criminal complaints filed in the case.

Tibbett and Just were each released on $10,000 unsecured bond after their arraignments.

Just had a goal and an assist last Friday in a 3-1 win at Robert Morris, and has seven points on the year, good for a second-place tie on the team. Tibbett is 0-3-1 this year with a .917 save percentage and a 2.81 goals-against average.
