(WGNO) – Less than 24 hours after arrest warrants were issued, former New Orleans Saints player Darren Sharper and his acquaintance Erik Nunez are in police custody.

Erik Nunez, 26,  turned himself over to the Orleans District Attorney’s Office shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, while Sharper surrendered to authorities in Los Angeles late Thursday evening.

Both Sharper and Nunez are wanted on two counts of aggravated rape.

They’re accused of sexually assaulting two women in New Orleans last September.

An attorney for Sharper has not publicly commented on the arrest warrant.
