BOY, 11, IS CHARGED IN SEX ASSAULT OF NEIGHBOR
An 11 year old boy was charged yesterday with sexually assaulting a 76 year old neighborhood woman in her home as three of his friends watched. The woman, who lives alone, had been terrorized in her home by the boys for a week before the attack, repeatedly breaking in and taking cash and other items. The woman was taking a sponge bath in the kitchen Friday when the boy walked in, demanding money and ordered her to take off her clothes and go into the bedroom. She said the boy put on a condom and tried to rape her, followed by a second boy. The boy's 13 year old brother was among the three other boys charged. The 11 year old was charged in juvenile court with sexual assault and being a party to burglary and criminal trespassing. The other boys - ages 11, 12 and 13 - were charged with being a party to burglary and criminal trespassing.
