Former Ohio State players Jahsen Wint and Amir Riep were recently indicted on three counts: two for rape and one for felony kidnapping. These indictments stem from a Feb. 4 incident where the two allegedly raped a woman.
They were dismissed from the football team the day after allegations came to light on Feb. 11 and were arraigned on Feb. 13. Both players posted bond and have been ordered not to have contact with each other or the victim and to stay off of social media.
Ryan Day released a statement after the two were dismissed from the team:
The details that have been released about the incident, though, are very disturbing.
I am inserting this paragraph as a trigger warning for rape, use of force and kidnapping in relation to the details of the incident. This content may be upsetting.
From Eleven Warriors:
At approximately 9:45 p.m. on Feb. 4, the two Ohio State players “forced vaginal intercourse with another … by purposely compelling said victim to submit by force,” according to a complaint filed on Tuesday by the alleged victim against Riep and Wint.
Riep, according to the complaint, “held the victim in place, restraining the liberty of another,” and pushed the victim “down by the neck then held her in place with his hands and body, with the purpose to engage in sexual activity with and against the will of said victim.”
Wint, according to the complaint, physically held the victim “by the face” and prevented the victim from “getting away or getting his penis out of her mouth, with the purpose to engage in sexual activity with and against the will of said victim.”
The victim began to have consensual sex with Riep before she stopped and moved away from him, telling him that she “did not want to continue,” per the summary statement of facts in a Franklin County Municipal Court affidavit in support of probable cause. Wint then entered the room, and Riep asked if he could join before forcing her to have non-consensual sex, per the affidavit. Riep then held her in place while Wint forced oral sex on the victim, according to the summary statement of facts.
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.
