A Gold Coast man will face court in Melbourne this morning after being charged with the gang rape of a 14-year-old girl in Geelong last week.

The 20-year-old from Pimpama was extradited to Victoria on Sunday, where he was arrested and later interviewed by Victorian sexual crimes squad detectives.

He has since been charged with one count of rape and one count of abduction and remanded to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court today.

Two Melburnians, brothers Allan Mark Wild, 29, and Kevin Andrew Wild, 28, have also been charged with one count of rape and abduction over the 1 November attack.

A fourth suspect, from Harrisdale in Western Australia, was also questioned but was released without charge.

The group are accused of grabbing the girl as she sat in a park with a 16-year-old male friend in the early hours of Sunday 1 November.

Police further allege the girl was raped near a park and then taken to a house where the sexual assault continued.

Her friend tried to prevent the attack but was assaulted.

The girl was found after knocking on the door of a house and asking for help.
