Two high school basketball players charged with assaulting a teammate at Ooltewah High School have been approved for bonds of $5,000.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the bond approval for the two 16-year-olds, each charged with aggravated rape and aggravated assault was released on Friday. A 17-year-old also charged in the case has yet to file a motion requesting bond, records show.

One of the 16-year-olds posted the $5,000 bond after a hearing on December 30. The other requested bond on January 11, but court officials could not confirm if his bond had been posted.

Three players were charged with aggravated rape but haven't been named because they're juveniles.

The incident allegedly happened December 22 at a Gatlinburg cabin while the team was at a tournament.
