TUCSON, Ariz. -- Charges have been dismissed against two University of Arizona students accused of sexually assaulting another student at a fraternity party.

The Arizona Daily Star reported the Pima County Attorney's Office asked a judge Wednesday to drop the case against Ellery Shane Gordon, 21, and Gregory William Haft, 19.

Prosecutors said there was a significant chance both men would not have been convicted.

Both men were indicted in February on charges of sexual abuse, sexual assault and kidnapping.

Police said the men are accused of locking a woman in a bedroom at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house and forcing her to perform sex acts on them.

Gordon and Haft posted $50,000 bonds shortly after their arrest and received permission to spend the summer in their home states.
