JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police in Johnston County say an alleged sexual assault was posted on social media.

Smithfield police have arrested 28-year-old Travis Graham and 23-year-old Juan Saunders, both of Goldsboro.

Graham is charged with first-degree rape. Saunders is charged with felony conspiracy to commit rape.

Police say a 26-year-old woman told investigators the rape occurred at a birthday party on Sept. 5. The incident allegedly happened after everyone had left the party except for three men.

The victim reported the incident after finding images of the sexual assault on a social media site.

Police say the victim was drunk, and didn't realize she'd been assaulted until she saw the images on the internet.

Police are looking for a third suspect. They did not release that suspect's name.
