BOY, 14, CHARGED IN RAPE OF 4-YEAR-OLD NEIGHBOR

A 14-year-old neighbor raped a 4-year-old girl in the girl's East Lawn Avenue home Tuesday evening, police said today.

The girl and the boy were playing in the girl's house about 6 p.m. when the boy took her into a bathroom and assaulted her, police said.

The girl's father called police, and Hertel Station officers arrested the boy and charged him as an adult with first-degree rape.

The boy was arraigned this morning in City Court and sent to a juvenile detention home in lieu of $5,000 bail, a court clerk said.
