JESSICA KARTALIJA: I'm Jessica Kartalija with your Evening Digital News Brief for Tuesday March 23, 2021.

A Bucks County woman is found dead at a hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. Now two men are facing charges for raping and drugging her. 21-year-old Evoire Collier and 24-year-old Dorian Taylor are being held without bail, accused of drugging and raping Christine Engelhardt, who was visiting South Beach for spring break. The two North Carolina men allegedly met the victim at a restaurant and at some point slipped her a green pill. It still isn't clear if it was given to her unknowingly or if she took it willingly. Hotel staff found the 24-year-old half-naked body and called police. The co-defendants are facing a sexual battery, burglary, credit card fraud, and theft charges.

A man who works as a special education assistant is charged with sexually assaulting two children. This is the suspect, 33-year-old Anthony Troupe of Bensalem. He was originally arrested in March on child pornography charges. Detectives later identified two children who they say were sexually assaulted by him. Police tell us the victims are not affiliated with the Hatboro-Horsham school district, where Troupe was employed through an outside company.

Authorities in Newcastle County are investigating the stabbing death of a woman found on the side of a road in Bear. Police found the victim in a wooded area just off County Road yesterday afternoon. Investigators say a person of interest has been identified. There's no threat to the public.

A suspect is hospitalized after being shot by federal agents in Mercer County. He's been identified as 26-year-old Jabree Johnson. Police say that he tried to rob some undercover agents working on an investigation last night. One of the agents opened fire, shooting Johnson in the parking lot of Krauszer's Food Store in Hamilton Township. Police say Johnson ran from the scene, opening fire in the process. We're told he's in stable condition at the hospital.
