The police spokesperson says the alleged victims, aged 15 and 18, are from the same school.

Meanwhile, the police are investigating a woman's complaint against the police after her husband allegedly attempted to rape her in a court room.

The man was facing domestic violence charges in the family court.

The woman has told the police that she was taken by a police officer to meet her husband in the room despite a protection order against him.
