Ohio State football junior cornerback Amir Riep and redshirt junior safety Jahsen Wint were arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping Tuesday, per Franklin County Municipal Court records.
Both were issued first-degree felony counts of rape and kidnapping, the arrest warrant states.
“We are aware that two of our students have been arrested and criminally charged,” university spokesperson Ben Johnson said. “They have been suspended from all activities involving the football program. We will share more information when available.”
Riep and Wint are currently being held at the Franklin County Correctional Center, where they await an arraignment hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday, the arrest record states.
According to an affidavit filed by the Columbus Police Department Tuesday, the incident is alleged to have occured at approximately 9:45 p.m. on Feb. 4 at 2330 Sawmill Place Blvd., when a 19-year-old woman and Riep began having consensual sex.
The woman “stopped and moved away after a brief time stating she did not want to continue.” The affidavit said Wint entered the room, and Riep asked if he could join. According to the complaint, Riep then grabbed the woman by the neck, forced her onto her hands and knees and raped her.
Riep then held her in place while Wint forced oral penetration, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit said Riep recorded a video of the woman and told her to say it was consensual while she was crying and he laughed at her. The statement said Riep then drove the victim back to her residence.
Riep appeared in 13 games for Ohio State during the 2019 season as a backup defensive back, while Wint appeared in all 14 filling mostly special teams roles.
