GULF SHORES, Alabama- Two Natchez men were arrested for raping a 14-year-old girl Tuesday night at Orange Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Alvion Terrill Sampson, 20, and John Brandon Sanders, 21, both of Natchez, were arrested Wednesday by Gulf Shores police and charged with first-degree rape, a Class A felony that could land them anywhere from 10 years to life in prison upon conviction.
The girl was found unconscious on Gulf Shores Parkway Wednesday morning by officers responding to a call of possible sexual assault.

Following up on a vehicle description given by the victim after she received medical attention and regained consciousness, Gulf Shores police were able to find the men. They made a traffic stop Wednesday and the information provided by the occupants of the vehicle led to the arrest of one suspect and then the second suspect was located and arrested a few minutes later.

Sampson and Sanders were booked without bond into the Baldwin County Corrections Center in Alabama.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
