AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Authorities are investigating the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Central Texas who was assaulted by several men, some of whom used cell-phone cameras to record the attack.

Court records filed in Austin indicate the girl ran away from home June 29 and was approached by a car with three men inside. The girl was driven to an apartment about a mile away.

Records say up to 10 men were at the apartment, with some taking turns having sex with the girl. She told police that some cheered.

The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/16LVN3j ) that two men have been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. Twenty-four-year-old Juan Lozano Ortega and 26-year-old Edgar Guzman Perez were in custody Thursday, each on a $30,000 bond, after being arrested a day earlier.
