WALHALLA, SC -

Six teenagers have been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a girl at a home in Oconee County.

Oconee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Watt stated that 18-year-old Tyler Joseph Normandin, of Fair Play; 17-year-old Brandon Peralta, of Seneca; three unidentified 16-year-old's and a unidentified 15-year-old were arrested and charged in connection with the attack, which allegedly occurred on October 12.

According to Watt, Normandin was charged with solicitation to commit a felony while Peralta has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He added that two of the juveniles have been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, one juvenile was charged with one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and another juvenile was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor but will be tried as an adult.

Watt stated that a School Resource Office at West-Oak High School received information Monday after a volleyball game about a party that had taken place at a home on Rodgers Road in Seneca late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The officer received information that a student who attends the school may have been sexually assaulted at the party. After meeting with the victim, the officer noticed injuries to the victim and the case was turned over to sheriff's office investigators.

According to warrants obtained from the sheriff's office, Normandin is accused of enticing, advising, inviting, ordering and encouraging others to perform the sexual assault on the teenage victim while she was helpless or mentally incapacitated. The warrants further state that Peralta engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim by using force or coercion while knowing that she was helpless, mentally incapacitated or mentally defective.

Normandin and Peralta were booked into the Oconee County Detention Center and subsequently released. The status of the four juveniles was not known. Watt stated that the investigation is ongoing.
