A 15 year old Springfield girl tells police she was sexually assaulted by up to six men after a party.

The girl told officers she was at a party over the weekend and left with two boys she knew from school. They allegedly went to a house on south 14th street, where three black males held her down while another two or three sexually assaulted her.

The girl told police she didn’t remember much about where the party was, who she was with, the address of the house where she was assaulted or descriptions of who assaulted her.

Police are still investigating.
