The sexual assault occurred at a hotel in the 500 block of Fellowship Road in Mt. Laurel on Dec. 8, 2011.

The victim was an acquaintance of one of the defendants.

The indictment alleges that the defendants recorded the assault using a smart phone. Police were called to the hotel after a guest saw the severely incapacitated victim enter the hotel with the two defendants and notified hotel management.

The indictments were returned Sept. 27.

An arraignment will be scheduled soon in Superior Court in Burlington County.

The defendants are free on $300,000 bail.

The investigation was conducted by detectives from the Mt. Laurel Police Department.

Anyone with information concerning these defendants that may be helpful to investigators is asked to call Mt. Laurel police at (856) 234–1414 ext. 1599.

An indictment is merely an accusation. The defendants are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty.
