Four boys under the age of 11 were charged in the sexual assault of a 7-year-old girl, police said Tuesday.
The girl told police the boys took her into the woods on Aug. 12 and sexually assaulted her, authorities said.
The boys, whose names were not released, were charged Monday and are expected to be arraigned this week, police Lt. Stephen Luebbe said. They were turned over to their parents pending court appearances.
Charges of gross sexual imposition were filed against the two 10-year-olds, a 9-year-old and an 8-year-old, Luebbe said. One of the 10-year-olds also was charged with rape, and the other 10-year-old and the 9-year-old were charged with abduction.
