Two Ohio State football players, including one from Brooklyn, accused of rape

Two Ohio State players were charged with kidnapping and rape by Columbus Police on Tuesday, following an alleged incident last week.

Senior cornerback Amir Riep and senior safety Jahsen Wint are accused of forcefully raping a woman in the Columbus, Ohio area at around 9:45 PM on February 4, according to court docs obtained by Eleven Warriors.

"We are aware that two of our students have been arrested and criminally charged", Ohio State spokesman Ben Johnson said in a statement sent to Newsweek. The school also said that the students had "been suspended from all activities involving the football program", and it would share more information when it became available. The woman can be been crying in the video as Riep laughs at her, court documents state. Riep and Wint were both charged with rape by threat of force and kidnapping for the purposes of engaging in sexual activity.

The alleged victim, who has not been identified, moved away from Riep and told him that she no longer wished to continue and it was at that point when Wint entered the room and asked if he could join, police said. Riep held the woman down with his body while Wint forced oral sex.

Police say the alleged victim was with Riep, a cornerback for the Buckeyes, at his Columbus apartment when the two began to engage in consensual sex.

According to the affidavit, Riep filmed the victim and told her to give her name and say the incident was consensual before driving her back to her residence.

Wint - who will be a senior this upcoming season - played safety for the Buckeyes, and is from Brooklyn, New York.
