ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Two University of New Mexico football players and another man plan to sue the University of New Mexico and its police department over an investigation that led to rape charges that were ultimately dropped.

Lobo football players players SaQwan Edwards and Crusoe Gongbay and community college student Ryan Ruff on Tuesday said they plan this week to file a suit accusing UNM police of conducting an inadequate investigation.

A UNM student told police in April she was raped at gunpoint inside a vehicle. The men were arrested but charges were later dropped. A prosecutor said there was insufficient evidence to prove guilt.

The men said they had consensual sex with the woman.

The university said it stands by the investigation and will carefully review the suit once it is filed.
