LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped charges against two men accused of raping two women in a University of Kansas residence hall during homecoming weekend.

The Douglas County prosecutor’s office said in a written statement that evidence initially suggested a crime occurred. But the statement said there was no longer sufficient evidence to proceed after more people were interviewed and cell phone and medical records were reviewed.

One former suspect is from Lawrence and the other from Olathe (oh-LAY’-thuh). Police said one of the men is a KU student.

Court documents had said the 21-year-old men knew the victims and had sex with them without consent. The charges had stated that that the victims were incapable of giving consent because of either mental deficiency or the effect of alcohol or drugs.
