Two men are in custody tonight, accused of sexually assaulting two teenage girls at Lake Macquarie earlier this month.
Police allege they threatened the 14 and 17-year-olds at Glendale on October 2nd, before touching and sexually assaulting them.
A friend of the alleged victims managed to run to a nearby shop and raise the alarm.
The men – aged 19 and 24 – were arrested yesterday and charged with several offences.
Both faced Newcastle Local Court today – neither applied for bail and the cases were adjourned until December
