2 Stamford men accused of sexual assault

Posted: Updated:
STAMFORD, CT (AP) -

Police say they broke up a sexual assault of a severely intoxicated woman by two Stamford men.

The Stamford Advocate reports that Ruben Enio Sandoval and Augusto Carreras were arrested on sexual assault, unlawful restraint and conspiracy charges. Police say they received a report the two men were dragging a woman into Carreras's apartment Saturday.

Court documents say an officer saw Sandoval having sex with the woman who passed out on a mattress.

The 35-year-old Sandoval and 53-year-old Carreras pleaded not guilty Monday in Stamford Superior Court.

Prosecutors say the allegations are shocking and are supported by the officer's account and surveillance video.

A public defender said both men would be appointed outside lawyers because the Office of the Public Defender has an unspecified conflict representing the men.
