A pair of Ohio State football players were charged with first-degree rape and kidnapping after an alleged incident at their apartment last week, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Cornerback Amir Riep, 21, and safety Jahsen Wint, 21, were charged on Tuesday in Franklin County Municipal Court in Ohio. Warrants were issued for their arrests. An Ohio State spokesman confirmed that they are aware of the charges and arrests, and head coach Ryan Day dismissed them from the team on Wednesday.

Per the report, the victim allegedly was hanging out Feb. 4 at Riep’s apartment that he shares with Wint when they began having consensual sex. The woman then reportedly stopped and told Riep that she wanted to be done, which is when Wint allegedly walked into the room and asked if he could join.

Wint then allegedly “grabbed the woman by the neck and forced her onto her hands and knees and then raped her,” while Riep allegedly “held her in place by the hips and with his body while Wint forced oral sex,” per the Columbus Dispatch.

Several minutes later, Riep allegedly filmed the victim and told her that she needed to say the sex was consensual on camera and was “laughing at her” while he did it. He then drove her home.

Riep recorded 20 total tackles and had two interceptions last season, his third with the program. The Cincinnati native has appeared in 37 games in his career. Wint recorded nine tackles and one sack in six games. The Brooklyn, New York, native has appeared in 35 total games.
