HALIFAX, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in North Carolina have accused two high school football players of raping a female student in a locker room.

The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office told local media outlets that 18-year-old Raquan Boswell and a 16-year-old student are charged with first-degree rape. The two are on the football team at Northwest Halifax High School.

Deputies said the two students “pushed and restrained a female student in a male locker room area.” Authorities didn’t say when the incident occurred.

Sheriff Wes Tripp said more arrests are possible in the case. The two students charged have a court appearance scheduled for Nov. 15. It’s not known if they have attorneys.
