JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Police in Jonesboro are investigating the reported rape of a 14-year-old girl who became pregnant.

Sunday an officer with JPD was called to St. Bernards Medical Center in reference to a sexual assault investigation.

The teen was brought to the emergency room complaining of pain. She was taken to the fifth floor of the hospital once it was discovered that she was pregnant and due to deliver.

Those close to the teen were unaware the girl was pregnant.

The investigating officer spoke with the girl alone and explained to her the severity of reporting a rape. The girl told the officer she was at a friend's house and had been watching movie with the friend's mother when she got sleepy and went to the other room to go to bed.

According to the victim, she woke up with one male on top of her and two other males holding her arms down.

She told the officer she did not know the men and could not remember anything about them.

No arrests have been made in the case at this time.
