SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

Two more people are being added to the list of suspects arrested in connection to the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl in Selma, bringing the total to three.

Police announced the arrests Wednesday of Trequan Latrell Savage, 18, and Pricilla Tables, 37. Another suspect, Jaquarious Lamar Richardson, 18, was already charged and in custody.

Police officers responded to the 100 block of Nannie Drive around 4 a.m. Sunday after receiving a report of a rape. It was there that detectives learned that the victim and her mother were visiting Selma for the holiday weekend.

The initial investigation showed that the victim consumed alcohol and was playing cards with Richardson, Savage and Tables when she became intoxicated.

Authorities initially arrested and charged only Richardson, but Selma Police Department spokesman Lt. Curtis Muhannad said an ongoing investigation by the Department's Special Victim's Unit showed evidence of additional suspects' involvement and a "probable cause" warrant was obtained for Savage and Tables.

Lt. Muhannad says both Savage and Richardson sexually assaulted the victim, and it is believed that Savage covered the victim's mouth to silence her. Both men are related to the victim.

Tables is said to be a family friend and is charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allowing those under 21 to consume alcohol. The charges against her are misdemeanors.

Richardson and Savage are being held at the Dallas County Jail on bonds of $30,000 each. Tables is being held on a $3,000 bond.
