LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two men have been convicted of raping a German tourist in Hollywood in 2016.

Jurors on Friday found Kenneth Mack guilty both of raping the tourist and aiding co-defendant Otis Barway in raping her.

Prosecutors say the woman was visiting LA for the first time and the men lured her to an isolated rooftop by promising to show her the city lights.

Prosecutor Paul Thompson says Mack knocked her to ground and raped her, followed by Barway.

Authorities say DNA evidence led to the arrests of the two men.

Mack also was convicted of raping another woman in 2016. He could be sentenced to more than 200 years in state prison.

Barway could face more than 9 ½ years.
