TYNDALL, S.D. — Law enforcement authorities in southeast South Dakota say two men are facing charges stemming from the rape of a woman in rural Bon Homme County.

The Daily Republic (http://bit.ly/2cC9P1B ) reports 18-year-old Avon resident Brendan Anderson and 18-year-old Tyndall resident Johnathan Kopp have been charged with third-degree rape and sexual contact with a person incapable of consent.

Authorities in court records accuse the men of performing sexual acts with an 18-year-old woman on July 23, when she was “incapable of giving consent because of any intoxicating, narcotic or anesthetic agent or hypnosis.”

Bon Homme County state’s attorney Lisa Rothschadl declined to provide details of the case.

The men have been released from custody on a $5,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday if they have attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
