A footballer has confessed to attacking a woman in a city center and faces trial on a supposed second assault.
Exeter City forward Jevani Brown on Thursday admitted to being guilty of assaulting a female casualty in February 2023.
The English League One side attacker is facing litigation after he refuted the claims of him attacking a second woman during the same time.
Jevani Brown got into the pleas in the course of a hearing at Exeter Magistrates’ Court today, March 24 and no information of the incident on February 2 were revealed.
Brown is the second top goal scorer for Exeter City and he was dropped by the English League One club after his indictment.
He would now be unavailable for the remainder of the campaign as the matter against him is still ongoing.
The English born Jamaican International started his footballing career at MK Don’s before he penned a deal with Peterborough United.
He has also played at Colchester United and Cambridge United before he was acquired by the English League One side in 2021.
