Two Ohio State University football players are under arrest on charges of rape and kidnapping, according to the Franklin County Jail.

Warrants have been issued for their arrests for the incident that allegedly occurred February 4.

"We are aware that two of our students have been arrested and criminally charged", an Ohio State spokesperson said. "They have been suspended from all activities involving the football program". 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.

Wint then allegedly walked into the room, and Riep asked the woman if Wint could join in, before allegedly grabbing her by the neck as both men raped her simultaneously as she fought to free herself.

Wint has been a member of the Ohio State football team since 2016, while Riep has been on the team since 2017. The woman can be been crying in the video as Riep laughs at her, court documents state.

According to Franklin County Municipal Court records, both players are listed as living at the same address on Columbus' Northwest Side, where the incident is alleged to have happened. They are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.


The two suspects are considered relatively high-profile players.

Despite missing three games with an injury, Riep was named all-GMC in 2016 on the strength of 20 tackles and four interceptions, giving him 15 career interceptions.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.


Police charged 21-year-olds Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint, both of whom played on the Buckeyes' Big Ten Championship team this past season. Wint recorded nine tackles and one sack in six games.
