According to a criminal complaint obtained by ElevenWarriors.com, Riep and Wint “forced vaginal intercourse” during an alleged incident on Feb. 4. The complaint states both men held down the woman against her will “with the purpose to engage in sexual activity,” Eleven Warriors reports.

The affidavit also states that Riep filmed the woman and told her to provide her name and say that the encounter was consensual before she went home, according to Eleven Warriors.

Both Riep and Wint are listed with the same address, according to Franklin County Municipal Court records.

Riep, a senior cornerback from Cincinnati, has appeared in 37 games for the Buckeyes, recording 33 tackles and three interceptions, including two last season. Wint is a senior safety from Brooklyn, New York, who has appeared in 35 games with 40 tackles.
