MAHWAH - A 20-year-old man says he was robbed and sexually assaulted by two teens he met on a New Jersey Transit train from New York.

Police say the man was intoxicated when he was allegedly approached by two teenagers on the train at approximately 3 a.m. Thursday.

The victim told police that the teens offered to help him get home, but instead brought him to a wooded area and forced him to perform a sex act. They then took him to a nearby home and tried to get him to go inside. When he refused, the victim says they forced him to perform sex acts on both of them outside.

Police say the victim then returned to the train station, where he realized his iPad and $150 in cash had been stolen.

Investigators were able to identify two suspects based on a description from the victim. Officers reportedly went to their homes, but were unable to speak to either of them.

The incident is still under investigation.
