City police arrested two more teen-age boys and were searching for two others in connection with the gang rape of a 13-year-old girl in East Baltimore, police officials said yesterday.

Corey Williams, 14, of the 1400 block of E. Preston St. and a 13-year-old were arrested Saturday at 11 p.m. at their homes, Sam Ringgold, a city police spokesman, said yesterday.

The 13-year-old was not identified and will be charged as a juvenile, the spokesman said.

The Williams youth and two other juveniles arrested early Saturday were charged as adults with rape, assault and false imprisonment.

The teen-agers in Saturday's arrest were William Arthur Davis, 14, and Marvin Blocker, 16, both of the 1200 block of N. Eden St.

All four youths were being held pending bail review hearings.

The two suspects at large were identified by the victim, Mr. Ringgold said without elaboration.

Police said the girl was raped repeatedly for several hours Thursday after being dragged into the basement of a two-family house in the 1200 block of N. Eden St.

The girl was treated at Mercy Medical Center and released. The Sun does not identify victims of sexual assaults.

The girl told police that she was confronted by three boys outside Frank's Confectionery Store at North Eden and Biddle streets, but did not go with the boys because she did not know them.

The boys forced her at gunpoint to go to the unoccupied cellar where they were soon joined by three others, police said.

Initially, Mr. Ringgold said that investigators thought as many as 10 teen-age boys were involved, but they now believe only six boys were involved.

Police said tips from witnesses to the abduction and from the girl led them to question the Davis and Blocker youths Friday night. They were arrested about midnight.
