A 15-year-old girl reported being sexually assaulted early Sunday morning at a Waikiki hotel.

Police said the victim and a female friend met a group of young men, estimated to be in their early 20s, between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. and accompanied the men to their hotel room.

Once at the hotel, one of the men assaulted her, the girl said.

She went to the Sex Abuse Treatment Center with her parents and filed a report on the incident from there.

The car may have damage to its front area.

The vehicle is described as a dark compact, possibly green, police said. The first three letters of the license plate are PCE, police said.
