NEWBURGH -- Authorities say three male students have been charged with raping a female student inside a dormitory at a Hudson Valley college.
Police in the city of Newburgh tell local media outlets that the freshman student was attacked early Sunday morning in a dorm at Mount Saint Mary College.
Police say the suspects are a 17-year-old from Brooklyn and two 18-year-olds from Hempstead and Rocky Point on Long Island. The three freshmen were charged with first-degree rape and released on $25,000 bail apiece after being arraigned earlier this week in Newburgh City Court.
Mount Saint Mary is a private, liberal arts college with an enrollment of about 2,700. It's located in Newburgh, 60 miles north of New York City.
