DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a former Clark Atlanta University student was raped and ransomed for Atlanta Falcons tickets.
DeKalb County warrants detail the case which allegedly started with a meeting on the college campus Aug. 29.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/2dfT7p5 ) 23-year-old Jaylan Wallace met the victim in a parking lot at the school and connected with her again at a home in the Lithonia area.
Once there, the documents say Wallace kidnapped and carjacked the woman and raped her, also forcing her to have sex with a 17-year-old boy. The documents say the woman was kept overnight and taken to a library where Falcons tickets were exchanged "for her freedom."
The warrants don't reveal who delivered the tickets.
Wallace and the teenager were arrested this week. They face charges of rape, armed robbery, and kidnapping.
