UTAH COUNTY -- Formal charges have been filed against four men accused of trapping two teenage girls in a truck earlier this month, then sexually assaulting them.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Kyle Anderson, 18, Jace M. Blickenstaff, 20, Shawn Havili, 18 and Jared E. Holland, 18, were charged with forcible sexual abuse, a first-degree felony.

The alleged victims claimed the four had offered them a ride on Oct. 7, but then would not let them out of the truck. The victims told police the men removed their clothing and fondled them.

The two girls said they were finally let out of the truck on the grounds of American Fork Junior High School, where they called police.

All four men could face up to life in prison if convicted.
