Clay Conaway, 22, of Georgetown, Delaware, was first arrested in August on one count of first-degree rape of a 20-year-old woman.

Since then, five additional women have come forward to say that they, too, were raped by Conaway.

He was re-indicted on those charges Monday, according to a story in the News Journal in Delaware.

Conaway was enrolled at the University of Maine, Orono, from 2014 through 2016 and was a pitcher on the baseball team.

There have not been any public allegations or charges from his time in Maine.


He transferred to the University of Delaware in 2016 and also was a member of that school’s baseball program.

According to the News Journal, Conaway was expelled this month after the university investigated a claim that he raped a woman in her off-campus apartment last November.

This story will be updated.
