The alcoholic energy drink Four Loko might have been used in the rape of a West Seattle teenager.

Two 15-year-old girls say Todd Phelan gave them Four Loko and vodka at his apartment after picking them up near a youth center.

The girls say they wanted to leave, but they were too drunk to do much of anything.

One of the girls claims the 34-year-old raped her repeatedly while she was out of it.

The West Seattle Herald reports Phelan admitted to getting them drunk but denies the rape. He also says he believed the girls were 18.

He's charged with child rape.
