ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Five Englewood School District students and one older teen are suspected of sexually assaulting a female freshman at a party, the school confirmed Friday.

The investigation began about 8:41 p.m. Sunday, when officers received a report of a missing teenager, the Englewood Police Department reported. While officers were taking the report, the girl was found by other officers in the 600 block of Englewood Parkway. She said that she had been sexually assaulted.

An investigation revealed that the victim was at a party with 10-12 other people in the 3200 block of South Galapago Street earlier in the day.  There was underage drinking and marijuana use, police said.

At least one parent was home at the time, according to an arrest affidavit.

Police interviewed numerous people in an attempt to determine who was at the party and what exactly occurred. As of Friday, police believe the girl was sexually assaulted by 6 people.

A medical examination revealed "significant trauma consistent with sexual assault," according to a statement attached to one suspect's arrest warrant.

Overnight on Sunday night into Monday morning, four males were arrested, ages 19,16,16, and 15. An additional 15-year-old was arrested on Wednesday. Charges were pending.

Police identified only one suspect, Daylon Benjamin Hill, 19, of Englewood. He was charged with five counts, including sexual assault and sex assault on a child. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

Detectives continue to investigate, and are seeking a sixth juvenile male suspect.

All of the juvenile arrestees, as well as the juvenile suspect that is still at large, are current students in the Englewood Public Schools district.
