GREENWOOD COUNTY, SC (WYFF) WYFF has learned that two arrests have been made in the sexual assaults of three Lander University students.

The Lander University Police Department arrested Presbyterian College football players Bobby Henderson and Cameren Jones, both 19-years-old, on Friday.

Henderson and Jones are charged with criminal sexual conduct, burglary and kidnapping.

Police said Henderson and Jones held three students at gunpoint and sexually assaulted them at Bearcat Village, a campus housing apartment complex.

A source close to the investigation told WYFF News 4 that a male student, who was trying to be nice, swiped his card to let the men into the building. Then, the pair went to the apartment armed with guns and forced their way in, police said.

According to the incident report, one of the students said that there was a knock on the door, and she could only see a shoulder through the peephole. She said she asked who it was, and the person answered, "It's a friend." She said when she cracked the door open to see who it was, two men, one who pointed a handgun at her head, forced their way into the apartment.

All three students were then sexually assaulted, according to the incident report. When the students screamed, the men told them to shut up or they would be shot, according to the report.

The report said one of the students was attacked as she got out of the shower after hearing her roommate scream. The report says she was then raped and punched in the stomach with a closed fist.

Police say Jones had a prior relationship with one of the victims.

The victims were all transported to Self Regional Healthcare for treatment.
