3 American swimmers stuck in Brazil amid investigation into robbery report

Two American Olympic swimmers who were yanked off a homebound flight will not be allowed to leave Brazil until they provide testimony to investigators about a reported robbery that targeted them and a couple of their teammates, their attorney said Thursday.

Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz were taken off their flight from Brazil to the U.S. by local authorities as investigators still search for answers regarding the alleged robbery involving them, Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen.

Feigen was ordered to stay in Brazil. He told USA Today that he’s cooperating with authorities. Lochte made it back to the U.S. before authorities could seize his passport.

Conger, Bentz and Feigen were expected to give statements to police on Thursday. A Brazilian official said the questioning would take place in Leblon, south of Rio.
