Two Ohio State football players, Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint, have been charged with rape and kidnapping, stemming from an alleged incident last week.
Senior cornerback Riep and senior safety Wint were booked into jail on Wednesday, Feb. 12, after warrants had been issued for them, according to TMZ.
A woman told police she was hanging out with Riep at the apartment he shares with Wint on Feb. 4 when they began to engage in consensual sex, according to an affidavit. The woman stopped and told Riep she didn’t want to continue.
However, after Wint entered the room, he joined along with Riep to commit sex acts on the young woman against her will.
Riep pushed the woman down by her neck and raped her, she said in the affidavit. Meanwhile, Wint forced the woman to have oral sex with him at the same time.
They stopped after several minutes, and Riep, while laughing at the woman, told her she needed to say on camera that what happened was consensual, according to the affidavit.
Ohio State said in a statement that it is aware of the charges as well as arrests and that both players had been indefinitely suspended from all activities involving the football program.
They were charged with first-degree felonies on Tuesday, Feb. 11, in Franklin County (Ohio) Municipal Court and are due in court for an arraignment hearing Thursday, Feb. 13.
