YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Three Morristown men, including a public safety officer at Drew University, were arrested by Bergen County prosecutor’s detectives at their homes yesterday and charged with twice raping a Waldwick woman they met in a bar in Teaneck earlier this month.

The 24-year-old woman was treated at Hackensack University Medical Center after she contacted Waldwick police – who, in turn, alerted the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit.

An investigation by the unit led to the arrests of Myron Damus ( above, right ), who turned 26 last weekend, and Emanuel Brice ( above left ) and Franklin Simmons ( middle ), both 24.

Brice is a public safety officer at Drew University, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said.

Simmons, meanwhile, works for a pet grooming service in Morristown, while Damus works for a mutual fund and communications firm based in Bloomfield, the prosecutor said.

All three were being held on $250,000 bail each in the Bergen County Jail, charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault, pending July 11 arraignments in Waldwick Municipal Court.
