REGINA – Former Saskatchewan Roughrider Justin Cox faces a new assault charge.

Regina police issued a warrant for Cox’s arrest on Oct. 5.

Police say officers were sent to a home on Sept. 25 after reports of a domestic assault.

They say there was an injured woman at the home.

Cox, who is 25, is charged with assault, breach of an undertaking and breach of recognizance.

The former defensive back pleaded guilty last month to assault causing bodily harm in a different case but has not yet been sentenced.

He was let go from the CFL Roughriders in April 2017 after he was arrested for assault related to an alleged domestic dispute, but he was found not guilty.
