Two Ottawa men face charges of sexual assault and attempting to procure for prostitution after police investigated an incident that allegedly took place earlier this week.


Police said Wednesday that on Monday, a 16-year-old girl was allegedly brought to an undisclosed location in Ottawa and sexually assaulted.


They said the victim and a 15-year-old girl were subsequently brought to a local hotel where attempts were made to engage them in prostitution.


Michael Paul Kerwin, 25, and Daryl Allen, 19, were scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
