(Newser) – Two Ohio State football players have been suspended following their arrests on felony rape and kidnapping charges. Cornerback Amir Riep and safety Jahsen Wint, both 21, are charged with rape with the threat of force and kidnapping with engaging in sexual activity stemming from an incident on Feb. 4. According to an affidavit, Riep was having consensual sex with a woman at the Columbus apartment he shares with Wint when the woman said she didn't want to continue. Police say Wint then entered the room, grabbed the woman by the neck, forced her onto her hands and knees, and raped her. Police also say Riep held the woman down as Wint forced oral sex. Riep is 6'1" and 185 pounds, while Wint is 6 feet and 198 pounds, per the Columbus Dispatch.

The encounter didn't end there. Per the affidavit, Riep began filming a video, which shows him pressing the crying woman to say the encounter was consensual. She reportedly asked if he wanted her face in the video, to which he replied, "No, just say it was consensual" while "laughing at her." He then told her to shower and drove the woman home. OSU said both men were "suspended from all activities involving the football program" in a statement late Tuesday, after arrest warrants were issued, per ABC News. They were booked into Franklin County Jail early Wednesday and are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. Both players were four-star prospects. Per the Dispatch, Wint was "rated as the Number 1 athlete in New York state by ESPN and the No. 1 safety prospect by Scout." (Read more rape stories.)
