COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus Police have charged two men with rape after two teenage girls reported being sexually assaulted at a house party on the city's south side.

Quentin Dowell, 21, is charged with one count of rape and Shaquille Porter, 17, is charged with two counts of rape and obstruction.

Investigators say Porter had a party at his house on Vicky Avenue in Oakland Park off South Lumpkin Road Saturday night into Sunday morning.

According to police, Dowell raped one of the teens at the party and Porter raped both of them.

Officers would not say where the assaults happened in the house but tell WTVM they took place between 12:15 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. and were reported to police shortly after that when the victims left the party.

Both men are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday at 2:00 p.m.
