The men, who have interim name suppression, appeared in Auckland District Court this afternoon, after pleading not guilty in February.

The men were first arrested in December last year after a woman made a formal complaint.

Police officers then contacted other complainants involved in an earlier investigation.

There is a warrant out for the arrest of a third man, who is overseas.

In court today, the two men were remanded on bail for a hearing later in the year.

Judge Kevin Glubb set a date in August next year for a seven-day trial.
