BIBLE HILL, N.S. — Four men have been charged after a 14-year-old girl said she was sexually assaulted at a house party.

Police say the men — two Nova Scotians, two from Ontario, all in their 20s — were arrested after the girl reported that she had been sexually assaulted at a party in Bible Hill, N.S.

"To me, it's quite unusual for us to investigate something of this seriousness with that age of a victim," said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, spokesperson for Nova Scotia RCMP.

All four men are charged with sexual assault and sexual interference.

The girl went to Colchester District RCMP on Dec. 18. Police say the two Nova Scotians, both from Colchester County, ages 21 and 23, were arrested in January.

A 27-year-old Sarnia, Ont., man was arrested on March 31, and a 25-year-old Cornwall, Ont., man was arrested in Ottawa on April 12. Both were returned to Nova Scotia by the RCMP, with help from the Canada Border Services Agency.

The three younger men appeared in Truro provincial court Wednesday, and all four are scheduled to return to court May 4.
