Brown 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 says 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.

John Grasso, a lawyer for one of the players said in a court proceeding in May that his client is innocent. Artin Coloian, a lawyer for the other player, would not comment on the allegations on Friday.

The AP does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault. The players are not being identified because they have not been charged.
