AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Auburn Police have four teenagers in custody after a 19-year-old woman claimed she was robbed and sexually assaulted inside her home.

18-year-old Lakeith Black, a 15-year-old and two 16-year olds was arrested and charged with first degree burglary, first degree theft of property, first degree rape and first degree sodomy. The 15-year-old is also charged with receiving stolen property second degree.

The juveniles' names have not been released due to their age. The suspects are all students at Loachapoka High School, and the victim said she did not know them.

According to the victim, the suspects forced their way into her home on May 12 at around 1 a.m. She says they then sexually assaulted her and stole over $7,700 worth of property, including her 2010 Kia Forte. Auburn Police recovered the vehicle after it was involved in a one-vehicle accident and abandoned. The other stolen property was recovered when the suspects were arrested.

Black and the two 16-year-olds were transported to the Lee County Jail and are eligible for a $155,000 bond. The 15-year-old is currently in the Lee County Youth Detention Center and awaits a detention and transfer hearing.
