Two college students suspected of gang-raping a woman on a Florida beach just steps away from crowds of spring break revelers have been charged with sexual battery and suspended from their university, officials said.

The attack involved three assailants and occurred sometime between March 10 and 12 “in broad daylight,” Bay County, Fla., Sheriff Frank McKeithen said at a news conference. “Within 10 feet of where this happened, there’s hundreds, hundreds of people standing there, watching, looking, seeing, hearing what’s going on.”

A third person is still being sought in the Panama City attack, which the Sheriff’s Office said came to light only after police in Troy, Ala., came across a cellphone video taken by a bystander.

Delonte Martistee, 22, of Bainbridge, Ga., and Ryan Austin Calhoun, 23, of Mobile, Ala., students at Troy University in Alabama, were arrested last week and charged with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators, the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
