    Two men sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl and posted photos of the acts online, according to West Haven police.

    Police have arrested James Conners, 25, of West Haven and are waiting for a judge to sign an arrest warrant for a 19-year-old man in connection with the alleged rape at the men's apartment on Jan. 14.

    The New Haven Register reports
    an arrest warrant affidavit for Conners says the two men gave marijuana and alcohol to the girl and her friend and then forced the 14-year-old to engage in sex acts with them. Police said the girls skipped school before meeting up with the men.

    Conners is charged with second-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor and promoting an obscene performance of a minor. His lawyer declined to comment.

    Bridges, an organization that provides prevention, mental health and addiction recovery programs, rents the apartment to the 19-year-0ld man, according to the arrest affidavit.

    The Register reached out to Bridges, and reports that the organization declined comment.

    He is due in court on Wednesday.
