ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Two police officers from New York have been charged with sexually assaulting a woman in an Atlantic City casino.

Lawyers for both men say the men are innocent and face extradition at hearings scheduled for Wednesday.

Andrei Torres, an officer at the New York Police Department, and Devon Thomas, of the New York state police, were both charged Tuesday with aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault by force without injury.

Authorities have not detailed the allegations, but say the alleged assault was at the Trump Taj Mahal on April 24.

Thomas’ lawyer Joseph Levine says his client did not engage in criminal wrongdoing.

Torres’ lawyer John Zarych calls the charges “a mistake.”
