ARCOLA, LA (WAFB) -

Two men are accused of trying to have sex with two underage girls. The men were caught with their pants partially down at the home of one of the girls.

Wilbert Pryer III of Plaquemine and Jessie Ussin of Grosse Tete, both 22, were arrested early Sunday morning.

They are each charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and criminal trespass.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office said the two men drove from Iberville Parish to the Arcola area in Tangipahoa Parish to meet up with the girls "with the intentions of engaging in sexual activity."

Detectives said their investigation showed the men met the girls online in a chat room and made plans to meet when the parents of one of the girls weren't at home.

Deputies reported they received a call around 2:30 a.m. from someone claiming two unknown men were seen going inside a home where several underage girls were home alone.

The caller stated the men parked their car away from the home and walked.

Investigators said a young woman on the porch of the home told them the two men were inside.

Deputies said as they walked in, they saw two men running out of the back bedrooms pulling up their pants. They were caught and arrested.

Pryer and Ussin were booked into the parish prison.

Bond was set at $25,000 for each.
