The teenager was able to break free and run to a safe place where she informed an adult about the assault.
Both men are described as being approximately 60 years old with dark hair.
They were wearing dark clothing that consisted of black shirts, black pants and black shoes. Both men were carrying large black backpacks and, according to the girl, had a dishevelled appearance.
The incident occurred in the area of the Topaz Field House and Washrooms.
Police were first notified of the incident on December 6th, and officers interviewed the girl last night due to her parents living in another country.
Police said the victim is currently receiving support.
As of right now, police are still working to identify and locate the suspect.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about this incident or surveillance footage of the area to call the VicPD at (250) 995-7654.
