Three teenagers were arrested after police say they held a woman against her will, raped her and sodomized her, according to warrants.
Michael Anderson, 19, Khristopher Garner, 17, and Matthew Thomas Perkins, 17, were charged in the July 1 sexual assault on the 3300 block of Mustang Drive in Powder Springs, according to the warrant.
The assault occurred at a house party, Powder Springs police Officer Justin Arndt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Anderson faces an aggravated sodomy charge and Garner faces a sexual battery charge, according to jail records. In addition to a rape charge, Perkins is being held in jail on weapons, disorderly conduct, reckless conduct and theft charges in a separate case.
The teens remained in the Cobb County jail Friday without bond.

A Salem man was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to raping and sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl.
Darrin Foix-Jones, 23, was arrested in November on 12 counts of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse.
During his interview with Salem police investigators, Foix-Jones repeatedly blamed his victim for initiating the sexual contact over a two-month period. According to court documents, he said he just "went with it" following the girl's alleged advances.
The victim told investigators Foix-Jones abused her on multiple occasions — more times than she "could count on both hands." She told him the abuse hurt, but he kept doing it.
In a sentencing memorandum, Marion County prosecutor Ashley Cadotte said Foix-Jones showed some cooperation by pleading guilty and not forcing his young victim to endure a trial. However, she said, he deserved more than the 25-year minimum sentence.
The reoccurring abuse, along with his "steadfast shift of blame to the shoulders of an (8-year-old) girl he was entrusted to care for ... whose trust he violated in the most heinous of ways," demands a longer sentence, she said.
Cadotte recommended a 33-year and four-month prison sentence.
Foix-Jones pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree sodomy, four counts of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of first-degree rape.
Marion County Judge Tracy Prall sentenced him to 30 years in prison. He was also sentenced to lifetime post-prison supervision and will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release.

HOT SPRINGS -- A homeless man was arrested on a felony warrant temming from allegations that he sexually assaulted a 5-year-old girl he was baby-sitting earlier this year.
Tyler Ray McKeller, 18, who lists no permanent address, was taken into custody and charged with second-degree sexual assault, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He remained in custody Thursday in lieu of $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Aug. 8 in Garland County District Court.
According to the affidavit, Hot Springs police detective Kenny May received a report May 2 that a 5-year-old girl had alleged that McKeller had assaulted her. The incident, which reportedly occurred at the girl's residence April 28, was reported to the Arkansas State Police Child Abuse Hotline.
The girl was interviewed May 2 at Cooper Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center and said McKeller was at her residence to watch her and other younger children, according to the affidavit. No other adults were present.
A forensic interviewer used anatomical diagrams and a doll while talking to the girl, the affidavit said.
On June 30, May spoke to the girl's mother, who confirmed that McKeller was left to watch over the younger children for a short time the night of the complaint. She said she confronted McKeller about the allegations and he admitted he tickled the girl but denied any sexual contact, according to the affidavit.
