Two Ohio State Football Players Suspended Over Rape, Kidnapping Charges

 Amir I. Reip, Jahsen Wint

Two football players from Ohio State University have been suspended after they were charged with rape and kidnapping. Jahsen Wint and Amir Riep, both 21, were arrested after authorities accused them of raping a woman in their shared apartment in Columbus.

Authorities say that the encounter between the victim and Reip started out consensual, but the woman changed her mind and asked to leave. At that point, Wint entered the room and asked to join. The two men then held her down and took turns having sex with her.

Officials said that the pair forced the woman to record a video falsely claiming that they engaged in consensual sex. They told her to take a shower before allowing her to leave. 

Both men were taken into custody and are being held at Franklin County Municipal Jail without bond.

Ohio State issued a brief statement saying that both players "have been suspended from all activities involving the football program."
