FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man who has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting North Dakota State University students at an off-campus apartment is scheduled to change his plea.

Authorities allege 39-year-old Stanley Busche attacked the three international students on Dec. 20 after he entered an unlocked door of their ground-floor apartment and ordered them to strip at knifepoint. Police say he sexually assaulted at least one of the women, and one was injured during a struggle.

A change-of-plea hearing has been scheduled for June 22. Busche faces charges of gross sexual imposition, attempted sexual imposition and terrorizing.
