Two charged in sexual assault of teen girls

An Ottawa couple is facing a series of charges after two 16-year-old girls contacted Ottawa Police with allegations they had been sexually assaulted.

Caroline Budd, 20, and Anthony Comunale, 31, were arrested without incident Thursday as police searched their home in the west end.

Police allege the two held the girls against their will, assaulting them with a ruler and sex toys.

Investigators are still trying to determine the exact sequence of events over the Victoria Day long weekend.

They say it appears one of the victims was sexually assaulted at the home.

She left and returned with a friend, and both were sexually assaulted.

Budd and Comunale are charged with sexual assault with a weapon and forcible confinement.

They will be back in court next week.

    It is strange that one girl left and then returned with a friend. Obviously from these vague details you can't draw any conclusions, but that stands out to me as something that is out of place in this story. Things may not be quite as they appear.
