According to police, the four men had sexual intercourse with a woman while she was highly intoxicated.

The men are also accused of using a camera phone to record the sexual assault.

The woman told police she was acquainted with the men, but wasn’t involved with any of them.

According to the Herald-Leader, the men were ordered to stay away from the victim, but Leas and Ryan Davis were later charged with tampering with a witness after police say they went to the victim’s place of work.

Both are being held in the Whitley County Detention Center
