PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Two men accused of sexually abusing homeless women in Portland entered pleas of guilty and no contest in court Thursday.

Bobby Alsup III and Bradley Ritmiller were indicted by a grand jury in July 2013 on charges including kidnapping, rape and assault.

In court Thursday, Ritmiller pleaded guilty to charges of assault and attempted murder. He was sentenced to more than seven years in prison. His probation on a previous case was also revoked, adding an additional 19 months to his sentence.

Alsup pleaded no contest to assault charges. He will be sentenced in May.

The investigation began June 18, 2013. A 27-year-old woman said she met Alsup and Ritmiller earlier that day and was sexually assaulted by them that night. Detectives said the same two men sexually assaulted a 44-year-old victim about an hour earlier.

Both women were homeless. Police said the sexual assaults occurred in the area of 82nd and Powell Boulevard.

Both victims were admitted to a Portland hospital with numerous injuries. The 27-year-old woman was beaten with a metal wrench, according to investigators.

Sex crimes detectives were able to positively identify the suspects as Ritmiller and Alsup.
