SALT LAKE CITY — Police say they’ve arrested two Salt Lake City men that officers believe raped an unconscious 14-year-old girl in the backseat of a car while a third man recorded it on a cellphone.

West Jordan Police Sgt. Joe Monson says the teen met one of the men through Snapchat and met up with him and two others on the night of Sept. 8.

Monson says the men gave the teen alcohol and 21-year-old Richard Djassera and 24-year-old Leclair Dodjim raped her when she lost consciousness.

Both men are being held in the Salt Lake County jail. They have not yet been charged and it’s unclear if they have attorneys.

Neither man had a listed telephone number where someone could be reached to comment on their behalf.

Monson told the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/2jMohN2 ) that police are still investigating the third man.
