ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico says running back Crusoe Gongbay is facing rape charges and has been suspended from the team.
University officials issued a statement Monday night saying the 20-year-old turned himself in to campus police.
Coach Bob Davie says he's aware of the allegations, and due to the serious nature of the charges, the junior has been suspended indefinitely.
KOB-TV reports that Gongbay and another man who is not a student each face two counts of second-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count of kidnapping.
The charges stem from April 13, when a female student reported she was the victim of sexual assault. Investigators say they consulted with the district attorney's office before requesting arrest warrants.
It's not immediately clear if Gongbay has an attorney.
