LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Andre Hunt and Katerian LeGrone are scheduled to appear in Lancaster County court Thursday, January 9th. Court documents filed Wednesday reveal more about the allegations they face.

According to a Lincoln police report, officers met with a 19-year-old woman at a hospital on August 25, 2019 on a report of a belated sexual assault.

She told police that Andre Hunt invited her to his apartment to hang out. They had met on social media. She went. She reported she did not say no when Hunt began touching her because she felt uncomfortable and pressured.

The report alleges that another person who has been identified as Katerian LeGrone entered into the room. The woman says blankets were put over her head and she was held down while both men had sex with her.

Lincoln police contacted LeGrone and Hunt on August 26th. LeGrone told police he did not have sex with the woman while Hunt said he had consensual sex with her.

Police say the suspects then voluntarily came to the police department later that day and reported that both had consensual sex with her.

According to court documents, investigators found internet searches on LeGrone's phone for "lying on statement of sexual assault," and "how is saliva detected during sexual assault."

The document says that as part of a Title IX investigation, Hunt provided a statement that LeGrone never asked to join in the sexual act and Hunt wasn't sure if the woman knew he was in the room. His statement apparently also said that LeGrone had told him to tell police different information about whether LeGrone had sex with the woman.

A rape kit found two male DNA profiles.
