SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police have arrested two of three men they believe sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl.

Court records show 29-year-old Christopher Jack Casias and 26-year-old Reagis Maurice Cobb were charged last week in the Dec. 11 assaults.

Police say Casias, Cobb and a third unidentified man took the teenager to a home where she was given drugs and alcohol.

Officers say Casias sexually assaulted the girl in a bedroom and then the unidentified man raped the girl, strangled her and recorded it on a cellphone.

Police say Cobb then entered the room and strangled the girl, threatened to kill her and sexually assaulted her.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1OhS4zK0 ) Cobb was arrested last week. Casias was arrested Saturday. Both were held Monday at Salt Lake County Jail.

Messages left with Cobb's attorney and a listed home number for Casias were not returned.
