3 UTC students charged in dorm sexual assault

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Three University of Tennessee at Chattanooga students have been charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexually battering a woman in a dorm room.

Records show Samuel Troy Wright, Kosygin Lamech Jones and Kysean L. Neal are being held on bonds at the Hamilton County Jail pending a Jan. 30 court hearing.

Campus police told WRCB-TV the female was bruised and scratched and told police that she was held against her will in a dorm room Monday. She said the three men poured lotion on her and groped her.

A jail officer said there is no record of the three men having lawyers.

Records show Jones is also charged with smuggling contraband into a penal institution.
