BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- (WTIC) -- A New York woman is facing charges after police said she lied about being raped by two Sacred Heart University football players due to fears a third student would lose romantic interest in her.
Nikki Yovino, of South Setauket, New York, has been charged with falsely reporting an incident and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
The 18-year-old Yovino said two Sacred Heart University football players sexually assaulted her in a bathroom in October during an off-campus party.
The men said it was consensual.
