PANAMA CITY, Fla. (TheBlaze/AP) — Two college students have been charged with sexually attacking a woman on a crowded Florida beach filled with spring break revelers who seemed to do nothing to stop what authorities called an apparent “gang rape.”
Ryan Austin Calhoun, 23, and Delonte’ Martistee, 22, were arrested Friday and charged with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. The Panama City News Herald reports both men are students at Troy University in Alabama.
The attack, recorded on a cellphone video, happened sometime March 10-12 in Panama City, Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen said at a news conference. Authorities learned of the assault when police in Troy, Alabama, discovered the video while investigating a shooting.
