HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

UAH hockey player, Lasse Uusivirta, will be in court May 1.

He is accused of attacking an 18-year-old student in his room on John Wright Drive.

The teen reported the rape immediately but didn't decide to press charges for several weeks.

Court documents state the victim was incapable of consent because she was physically helpless or mentally incapacitated.

Uusivirta is charged with first degree rape.
