Five men, including one from Accrington, have been charged with committing sex offences against a girl.
The alleged offences are said to have taken place in the Blackburn and Accrington areas beginning in the late 1990s.
Arif Nadeem, 37, of Craven Street in Accrington, has been charged with one count of rape.
The other men from Burnley and Blackburn face charges of rape and indecent assault
A 39-year-old man from Accrington arrested in May on suspicion of rape remains on bail until March.
Detective Chief Inspector Claire McEnery, of Lancashire Constabulary’s Public Protection Unit, said: “We have been working very closely with the alleged victim for a number of months since these matters came to our attention.
“We take all allegations of sexual abuse extremely seriously and we would encourage people with any information about the sexual abuse of children, or anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse to come forward and report their concerns confident in the knowledge it will be investigated appropriately and with sensitivity.”
All those charged are bailed to appear before Burnley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, December 29.
