The charged follow an incident last Sunday (January 14).

An investigation began after police received a report that a woman had been raped by two men on Sunday afternoon.

The men appeared at Coventry Magistrates' Court yesterday (Wednesday 17 January) where they were remanded to appear at Warwick Crown Court on 23 February.

Police are still trying to identify a cyclist who is reported to have spoken to victim after the incident.

In an appeal earlier this week, Warwickshire Police said the cyclist was seen talking to the victim at around 7pm near to the Vue cinema in Augusta Place.

The cyclist is described as being a woman in mid-40s with shoulder length dark hair. She was wearing a three-quarter-length coat and riding a white bike.
