Two Brown University football players accused of sexual assault
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Two Brown University football players are at the center of a rape investigation in Rhode Island.
According to a police report, a Providence College student told police in February that she believes she was drugged at a bar in November. She says she woke up in a Brown dorm room and was sexually assaulted.
The attorney general’s office told The Associated Press on Friday it is reviewing the case.
The school says it is cooperating with law enforcement.
Court documents from last month say the students were asked to leave campus in April. The school told the AP on Friday they remain enrolled.
Messages left for both players were not immediately returned. John Grasso, a lawyer for one of the accused, said in a court proceeding in May that his client is innocent.
The AP does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault. The players are not being identified because they have not been charged.
