January 12, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Four men were arrested early Friday and charged with rape and sexual assault after an 18-year-old Simi Valley woman reported that she was attacked in her bedroom, authorities said.

The woman knew one of the suspects and had expected him to visit her, Det. Sgt. Mike King said.

The man arrived with three male friends the woman didn't know, she told police. The four men were drinking and gave her a glass of water, the woman said.

King said the woman later became aware that she was being sexually assaulted.

The men, who were arrested near the residence, were identified as Jeffrey Feliciano Pineda, 19, Dejon Lashadell Lee, 19, and Yan Karim, 19, all of North Hollywood; and Brian Ali Jafari, 19, of Studio City.
