NEW ORLEANS - Erik Nunez, the man accused of participating in the rapes of two women along with former Saint Darren Sharper, turned himself in to authorities Friday morning.

Nunez, 26, had an arrest warrant issued on two counts of aggravated rape for the incident, which is alleged to have occurred in September, 2013.

Nunez was ordered held without bond until a March 7 hearing.

Sharper turned himself in to police in Los Angeles, according to several reports.

The NOPD says two women claimed they were raped last September by Nunez and Sharper. Nunez's Facebook page says he's an event coordinator with the NFL. The page also has a flyer on it for an event, The Football Camp for Her, hosted annually by Sharper's agent.

An initial police incident report obtained by Eyewitness News says the rape happened at 701 Tchoupitoulas in the Warehouse District on September 23 at 10 am. The report doesn't mention a second victim and doesn't mention a second suspect.

Now police say a second victim claims she was raped by both Sharper and Nunez in the same apartment as the first victim on Sept. 23.

"The stakes have been dramatically increased for Darren Sharper and Erik Nunez. They were the subjects of arrest warrants issued by the New Orleans Police Department for aggravated rape," said Eyewitness News Legal Analyst Donald "Chick" Foret.
