Velasquez was arrested and has been in jail since the shooting. The fighter’s team recently posted an update and raised awareness during the National Sexual Assault Awareness & Child Abuse Prevention Month. The fighter urges his followers to support the organization RAINN which fights against sexual assaults and child abuse.

“Only a tiny fraction of children who are sexually abused will ever tell anyone. Around 85% of children who are sexually abused are abused by someone in their circle of trust,” were some of the statements made in Cain’s recent tweet regarding Child Abuse and sexual harassment.

Cain was recently called for a hearing regarding his bail in court. The fighter was arrested on February 28th for attempted murder charges and was denied bail at his hearing in March. The court dismissed the bail request by claiming Cain’s behavior was “extreme recklessness to human life.” Velasquez was later scheduled for a hearing on April 12 but he still remains in jail without bail.

In the latest tweet from his account, the statement read, “Although I am not at home, I stand to help educate the community and provide resources and information for victims and their families. No one should have to go through sexual abuse and we need to stand up and push for change. Thank you all for your continued love and support.”
