Boys, ages 11, 9, charged with rape


Two boys -- ages 11 and 9 -- have been charged as juveniles with sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl at a weekend party at a Northeast Baltimore home, city police reported.

The victim told police she was visiting a home in the 2300 block of Odell Ave. between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday when she accompanied two boys she knew into a bedroom.

One boy stood at the bedroom door to prevent anyone from entering, she said, while the other told her to disrobe. The victim told police that after she refused, one of the boys forced her to disrobe and both had sex with her.

The girl told her parents about the incident and they called police. The victim was examined at Francis Scott Key Medical Center, authorities said.

Police arrested the boys, who were released to the custody of their parents. They were charged as juveniles with rape, according to police.
