ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. (AP) — Four teens are facing charges from what New Jersey authorities say was the sexual assault of a highly intoxicated 15-year-old girl that was videotaped on a cellphone.

The Bergen County prosecutor has charged three 18-year-olds, Justin Draper, Craig Howe and Ashari Wilson, with aggravated sexual assault. A 17-year-old faces the same charge as a juvenile.

Wilson is also charged with manufacturing child pornography.

The prosecutor’s office says the assault took place in June behind the Elmwood Park home where Draper and Howe live. The girl was later found unconscious by her parents on the front lawn of her home.

A friend later told the girl she had seen a video of her engaging in sex.

The adults remain held on bail.
