This story has been updated.

DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - Two Poughkeepsie men were charged Monday with felony sexual abuse in the first degree, according to the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department.

Jorge Victoria-Sanchez, 38, and Andres Hernandez, 34, were arrested after the department responded to a call for a sexual offense in the town on Saturday, July 15, said Capt. Ken Roman.

Although police would not comment on the events surrounding the arrests, they were charged in relation to the sexual abuse of a victim.

A follow-up investigation into the crime led officers to identify Victoria-Sanchez and Hernandez as suspects, said Roman.

Both suspects were arraigned and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond bail. They are scheduled to return to Town Court on Thursday.
