REPORT: Two Ohio State Football Players Have Been Charged With Kidnapping, Sexual Assault
Two defensive players for the Ohio State University football team are in some serious trouble after they were charged with rape and kidnapping of a woman.
Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint have been taken into custody at Franklin County Jail, CBS’ WBNS-TV reports.
“According to a criminal complaint filed in Franklin County Municipal Court, the victim initially began having consensual sex with Riep but decided she did not want to continue. The victim told police that Jahsen Wint entered the room and Riep asked the victim if Wint could join. At that point, the victim stated to police that Riep grabbed her by the neck, forcing her to have sex. She also said that Riep pinned her in place while Wint forced oral sex on her.
According to court documents, after both parties ended they forced the victim to give her her name and say the sex was consensual on a video recording. She also told police that the suspects forced her to take a shower before Riep drove her back to her residence.”
Wint joined Ohio State’s football team in 2016, while Riep joined in 2017.
“We are aware that two of our students have been arrested and criminally charged,” OSU spokesperson Ben Johnson tells 10TV. “They have been suspended from all activities involving the football program. We will share more information when available.”
