Updated: FSU Police Catch Rape Suspects

Leon County Jail

Florida State University Police have arrested two men suspected in a sexual assault that occurred early Sunday morning. 

Nineteen-year-old FSU student Cole Durett Borror Ekus is facing charges of sexual battery for his role in Sunday’s sexual assault of a female student near the campus’ main library.  Law enforcement officials say they believe the second suspect,  George Herbert Colony IV is also facing a sexual battery charge.

Police initially believed Colony IV had fled the area. He was located and arrested at his attorney's office.

The victim, a fellow student, says she was approached by the two men asking for directions to a residence hall Sunday morning at about 3 a.m. She walked with them until they got near Strozier Library by the business school, and that’s when she says the two men sexually assaulted her.
