Luke Armstrong, son of world-famous cyclist Lance Armstrong, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in 2018, according to an Austin Police Department affidavit.

Armstrong's attorney Randy Leavitt denied the allegation by saying, "What happened three years ago in high school was not a crime and not a sexual assault. It was a consensual relationship that continued for a longer period of time. These charges should never have been filed and certainly not three years later."

The victim told the police in November 2020 that she asked Luke to pick her up from the party as she has been drinking. She told police that she didn't remember the ride with Armstrong but woke up in his house where he sexually assaulted her on the couch. 

The Austin Police Department said that they spoke to several people including her mother, who said she noticed behavioral changes and nightmares after that night, People reports. 

The victim also made a recorded call to Armstrong on Dec. 8, 2020, during which Armstrong allegedly admitted to having sex with her at his father's house. 

The police were informed that the victim confessed to six people that Armstrong had assaulted her. Police interviewed all six of them, to which four described the sex as non-consensual, the NYPost reported. 

According to the affidavit, one of her friends told the police that the sex was consensual. After which Luke was released on a personal recognizance bond. The family is cooperating with the district attorney’s office and Leavitt said he is actively gathering evidence and witness testimonies to prove Armstrong’s innocence.
