UNIVERSITY PARK -- Penn State police have filed charges against three people for the assault of a former university student during an alleged hazing incident.

Bianca Jeanty, 21, of Maplewood, N.J., Hanif Johnson, 22, of Harrisburg, and Felicia Ragsdale, 22, of State College, face misdemeanor charges of simple assault and conspiracy.

In a criminal complaint filed Tuesday, police said the three repeatedly assaulted Asya Trowell in early April, injuring the woman, who was then a freshman at Penn State.
