TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Three boys have been arrested in Pierce County after police say they sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl and posted photos and video on social media.

Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the boys, ages 13, 14 and 17, were arrested Thursday. Prosecutors were reviewing the case Friday.

The News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/5u0DHU ) the assault happened Monday during a party in a shed behind the girl’s home in the Lakebay area.

Investigator says the girl was tied up with a cord, dragged around the shed and sexually assaulted by the teens while her younger sister hid nearby. They say the attackers sent photographs and video via Snapchat to friends of the victim’s sister.

The girl’s mother later found her semi-conscious. She was partially nude and covered in scratches and blood.

A 20-year-old man with a warrant for first-degree child rape in Mason County was present at the party and arrested.
