SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Two students at Missouri State University are accused of kidnapping a woman over the weekend and sexually assaulting her at an apartment.

Ahmed Alanazi, 27, and Rayan Alqabbaa, 21, are each charged with Forcible Sodomy and Kidnapping in connection with the alleged crime on Saturday, June 1, and could each face a 30-year prison term if convicted.

According to court documents (see below), a cab driver called police to report the men who'd allegedly kidnapped the woman from Zan Nightclub at 311 S. Patton Ave. early Saturday morning.

Police say the call came in shortly before 3 a.m. The driver told police he dropped the suspects and the woman who was "in and out of consciousness" off at the Deep Elm apartment complex at 701 E. Elm Street.

Officers say they arrived to hear the victim moaning. Once inside, they found the woman crying on a bed, partially clothed, asking for help. Surveillance video, police say, showed the men carrying an injured woman into the apartments.

The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She told police she remembered getting free drinks, being surrounded by a group of men, but nothing else up until she arrived at the apartment.

Both men, who are from Saudi Arabia, are held in Greene County jail in lieu of $1 million because they're considered to be flight risks.
