Ex-NFL Star Darren Sharper Hit with New Rape Charges

According to court documents filed in Los Angeles, one of the alleged victims in New Orleans met Sharper at a Sept. 22 event for Saints football players and later accompanied him to a bar, where he gave her a drink. Her next memory was around 10 a.m. on Sept. 23, when she woke up to find Sharper "on top of her sexually assaulting her," the documents said.

But in a press release issued Wednesday, police said that investigators subsequently learned that "not one, but two women were allegedly sexually assaulted by Sharper in the same apartment the night of Sept. 23. New information uncovered also indicates that Nunez also allegedly raped both women that night at the same location."

The statement also said that the investigation is continuing and that additional arrests were possible, police said.

Nandi Campbell, a New Orleans attorney for Sharper, who is out on bail on the Los Angeles charges, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

But Sharper's attorney in Los Angeles, Blair Berk, told NBC News earlier this month: "We are hopeful that Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated when the true facts are revealed."
