Two women filed for separate restraining orders against three Georgetown basketball players in November, according to court documents obtained by ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

The first restraining order was filed against Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander on Nov. 5. The woman who filed it alleges LeBlanc burglarized her and her roommate's home in September and then threatened them.

"In response to an alleged burglary that I believe Joshua LeBlanc committed against me on September 16, 2019, Joshua threatened bodily harm against myself and my roommate," the statement reads. "He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week."

The student's roommate filed a second restraining order on Nov. 12 against LeBlanc, Alexander, and freshman teammate Myron Gardner. She accuses Gardner of sexual harassment and assault on Sept. 15 and said the three players burglarized her home the following day. She also says both local and campus police were notified of the incident.

The first restraining order was granted on Nov. 20 when LeBlanc and Alexander did not appear at a hearing. The second request is pending a Dec. 9 hearing.

Guard James Akinjo, who was removed from the Hoyas on Monday along with LeBlanc, is not named in any of the documents, according to Borzello. Akinjo's exit from the team is not connected to the investigation involving LeBlanc, Georgetown athletic director Lee Reed confirmed in a statement.

Neither Gardner nor Alexander was named in Hoyas head coach Patrick Ewing's statement regarding Akinjo and LeBlanc's sudden departures.

Reed wrote in his statement that LeBlanc and Akinjo are no longer with the team due to their interest in transferring. Georgetown previously issued a statement suggesting the school is investigating allegations of a student code violation.

Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly. While we are not able to comment on specific cases, we have processes for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations for our student code that are fair to both parties. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct.

Both LeBlanc and Akinjo are reportedly in the transfer portal.
