3 arrested in attack on couple

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Two adults and a teenager have been charged with aggravated rape in a late December attack on a Memphis couple.

Memphis Police Maj. Joe Scott said in a statement that 25-year-old Jermaine "J-Rock" Owens, 21-year-old Rarlo Primes and a 16-year-old also face two counts each of especially aggravated robbery and especially aggravated kidnapping. The three were arrested Thursday.

Scott says the attack happened in the early morning hours of Dec. 29. Police say a man and woman were kidnapped from a parking garage outside the woman's apartment, then taken to a field where the woman was sexually assaulted and the man shot.

Scott says the man remains in critical condition in Memphis University Hospital. The identities of the man and woman were not released.
