Four boys, all between the ages of 12 and 14, were arrested Wednesday in connection with the rape of a teenager in Delaware last month, police said Friday.
New Castle County police said in a press release that the attack took place on December 11 in the community of Bear, located south of Wilmington.
The girl was driving home on the school bus when a schoolmate stole her phone and then forced her into a house where the four children raped her repeatedly, according to court reports obtained by The News Journal of Wilmington.

The four children were arrested on Wednesday after authorities discovered evidence linking the suspects to the crimes, including a video of the rape recorded on the victim's cell phone.
The four children are accused of various crimes, including rape, kidnapping and illegal sexual contact, according to the police. A hearing is scheduled to determine whether the four will be processed as adults, according to local reports.

Two of the children were also accused of aggravating threats because they allegedly threatened the victim with a weapon and "warned him not to tell anyone," police said.
The detectives are also concerned that there are more victims, and request that anyone with information contact the New Castle County Police.
