(Scroll down for video) Four teenage wrestlers were arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly raping two boys while traveling on a bus, police in Oklahoma said.

Garvin County police said that they have arrested 18-year-old Tanner Shane Shipman, 17-year-old Hunter Oren Matthews, 17-year-old Sage Griffen Gandenberger, and 16-year-old Chase Denton Smith, after being accused of raping a 16-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy.

All four suspects were charged with rape by instrumentation.

Police said that the attack was recorded on the bus’ security surveillance cameras.

According to the police investigation, the four suspects used their fingers to attack the two boys. The 16-year-old victim was restricted under the seats in the back of the bus and was assaulted for more than six minutes.

The bus transported wrestling teams from an arena back to the school. After the 16-year-old wrestler was assaulted, the four suspects turned to the 12-year-old victim.

The 12-year-old wrestler was sexually assaulted for a second time as the bus arrived at the Norman North High School. The sexual assault then continued in a secluded area outside the school.

The 12-year-old victim escaped temporarily, but was caught and held down between two parked cars. The assault ended when the father of the 12-year-old boy arrived in the parking lot.

The four defendants have been suspended from school.
