Soccer player Lucas Piazon, 21, and fellow Brazilian Andrey Da Silva Ventura, 22, are wanted by the police for allegedly sexually assaulting a Toronto woman during the Pan Am Games. According to the Daily Mail, the authorities "allege that the victim was asleep when Piazon and Andrey entered her bedroom and sexually assaulted her. They claim that the pair then left the property."

"It is alleged that: on Saturday, July 25, 2015, a 21-year-old woman, along with a friend, met two men in a nightclub in Toronto. The two men accompanied the women to one woman's residence.
