Police probe alleged rape of 3 Monroe girls

MONROE — Three men are under investigation for reportedly raping three Monroe-area girls in February.

As of Friday night, all three men had been arrested. One is 18, from Monroe. A second is 22, from Sultan. The third is a 22-year-old from Marysville. All three men were being held on suspicion of second-degree rape.

The victims were between 15 and 16, Willis said. Police allege that the men gave the girls drugs and alcohol until they passed out. Detectives believe the alcohol may have been spiked with some sort of drug. All three girls woke up and had been raped. Police learned about the incident earlier this month.

The investigation is ongoing, Willis said. Monroe police are working with other agencies around the county to determine where the assaults took place.
