    No Charges to Be Filed in Brown University Rape Investigation

    A Providence County grand jury has declined to indict two Brown University football players investigated for sexual assault.

    According to a police report, a Providence College student told police in February she believes she was drugged at a bar in November. She says she woke up in a Brown dorm room and was sexually assaulted.

    The attorney general's office said Monday there will be no charges stemming from the alleged incident.

    Lawyers for the players could not immediately be reached for comment.

    Court documents say the students were asked to leave campus in April. The school told the Associated Press in June they remain enrolled.

    A university spokesman said Brown did not have a statement available. He could not say whether the players will return to start classes next week.
