Ryan Calhoun, Delonte Martistee identified as Troy students arrested for Spring Break rape

Two Alabama college students have been identied after being arrested and charged with gang raping a woman while on spring break at Florida’s Panama City Beach.

Ryan Calhoun and Delonte Martistee, two Troy University students, were arrested and charged with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators, according to a statement from the Bay County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office.

The Troy Police Department found video of what appeared to be a Panama City gang rape during the course of an investigation into an unrelated shooting. The video was turned over to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office.

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division has identified the victim in the video but said state law prevents the office from releasing any information about her. She was a visitor in Panama City.

“We are not releasing her location or any additional information on victim to protect her from further trauma,” said sheriff’s spokesman Tommy Ford.

After interviewing witnesses, Bay County investigators determined the alleged rape took place sometime from March 10, 2015, to March 12, 2015, behind Spinnaker Beach Club, a popular bar and dance club for spring breakers.

A statement from Troy University confirmed the two men are current students. “The students have been placed on temporary suspension from school per the university’s standards of conduct and disciplinary procedures. Martistee, a member of the track and field team, has also been removed from the team.”

The investigation continues and more arrests are expected, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office said.
