Two college athletes in Fresno, Calif., have been arraigned and charged in the gang-rape of an 11-year-old girl. Authorities confirm that the child was assaulted last Saturday by as many as 10 men, at least six of whom are local college football players.

Prior to the assault, the victim ran away from a Fresno group home, along with a 15-year old girl who's now considered a potential witness to the rape. Police say more arrests are possible.
