GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A judge denied bond Monday for two Presbyterian College football players who were arrested in connection with an attack on three women at a Lander University apartment.

The attack happened about 10:15 p.m. March 21 at the women's apartment at Bearcat Village.

According to an incident report, two men stormed into their apartment after one of the women opened the door to see who was knocking. It said the men pointed guns at the women, and made them perform sexual acts.

Nine days later, police said they arrested Bobby Henderson III and Cameron Jones, both 19, and charged them with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, first-degree burglary and kidnapping.

During a post-arrest hearing, a judge said he would take a request for bond under advisement. On Monday, the judge released his decision that denied bond for both Henderson and Jones, citing the pair as a flight risk and an unreasonable danger to the community.

Presbyterian College said both students were suspended and would not be allowed on campus, pending the outcome of their cases.
