Central Coast Mariners player Angel Torres has been suspended from playing by Football Australia after facing sexual assault charges filed by NSW Police. The 24-year-old Colombian athlete was accused of common assault, intimidation, and aggravated sexual intercourse without consent in connection with an incident involving a 21-year-old woman that occurred on March 24.

Football Australia took action by implementing a no-fault suspension on Torres, which prohibits his involvement in football and club-related activities. The Central Coast Mariners have announced that they will refrain from providing further comments on the ongoing case, emphasizing that the charges against Torres are yet to be determined by the New South Wales courts.

Angel Torres is scheduled to appear in Gosford Local Court on May 6. The Australian Professional Leagues, governing body of the A-League, has acknowledged the situation and expressed commitment to collaborating with all relevant stakeholders as the legal process unfolds.
