SCIOTO COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- The Scioto County Sheriff says a teenage boy has been charged with raping a 5-year-old girl.
Sheriff Marty Donini says the girl’s mother reported the alleged rape early Tuesday morning.
Sheriff Donini says the girl was taken taken to Southern Ohio Medical Center for treatment then transferred to Adena Medical Center in Chillicothe, which specializes in younger victims who have been sexually assaulted.
Donini says the boy was charged after he and his mother were brought to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning, and following interviews with witnesses and the victim’s mother.
Since the boy is a juvenile, his name is not being released.
