According to Brazilian police, Saada called the victims to his room at the accommodation center built for the Olympic games as if to ask a question, Brazil's OGlobo reported. When they responded to his quarters, the boxer attack them, grabbing the thighs of one of the waitresses and the breasts of the other, police said. Two other athletes were reportedly in the room, but did not participate in the alleged attack. The two victims were able to break free and escape.
Under Brazilian law, suspects can be held for a long period of time while a case is examined.
