Police charge three in attacks on North Carolina football players

CHAPEL HILL (AP) -- Authorities have charged two women and a man with a weekend attack on three North Carolina football players. Police say robbery was probably the motive, although two of the players were sexually assaulted. Police say the players were attacked early Sunday at their off-campus apartment in Chapel Hill. All three were bound with tape before they were assaulted and one suspect threatened the players with a knife. None of the players required medical attention. Twenty-eight-year-old Monique Jenice Taylor of Greenville, 29-year-old Tnika Monta Washington and 32-year-old Michael Troy Lewis, both of Durham, have been arrested. They are charged with kidnapping, conspiracy and resisting arrest. Taylor and Washington also are charged with first-degree sexual offense. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press.
