Six people have been arrested after a teen was reportedly sexually assaulted at a party, according to Jimmy Watt of the Oconee County Sheriff's Office.
Watt said a school resource officer at West-Oak High School was told about a sexual assault that happened at a party on Rodgers Road in Seneca on Oct. 12.
Deputies said they then met with the victim and noticed visible injuries.
Brandon Peralta, 17, Tyler Normandin, 18, and four juveniles have been charged, according to Watt. He said three of the juveniles charged are 16 years old and one is 15 years old.
According to warrants, Peralta is accused of engaging in sexual battery "using force and/or coercion to accomplish the battery, the defendant knowing or having reason to know that the victim was mentally defective, mentally incapacitated or physically helpless."
Warrants said Normandin, "with the intent that another commit a crime, did entice, advise, invite, order or otherwise encourage others to commit the felony act of criminal sexual conduct upon a 15 year old victim while said victim was mentally incapacitated or physically helpless."
Watt said the juveniles' names will not be released because of their age.
