KUNA — The Ada County Sheriff's Office says four Boise teenagers have been arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with an 18-year-old girl earlier this month.

Swedi Iyombelo, Mulanga Rashidi and Elias Lupango are all currently being held in the Ada County Jail. A 16-year-old boy was also arrested on Friday morning. He's being held at the Ada County Juvenile Detention facility.

Police deputies arrested the 18-year-olds Iyombelo and Rashidi in Kuna on Thursday. Lupango, who is 19 years old, was arrested Thursday afternoon in Boise.

Kuna Police began their investigation on February 8 after receiving contact from a third party. The victim told investigators she had sexual contact with Iyombelo earlier this month in a car in a Kuna neighborhood when the other three boys showed up and all four forced themselves on the girl in the car.
