Three-year-old boy sexually assaulted

Jun. 12, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

PORTSMOUTH -- The mother of a three-year-old Scioto County boy reported last week that her son had been sexually assaulted, according to the office of Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini.

Authorities opened an investigation and talked to the Niles Township residents and turned the case over to a detective. The victim was taken to the Southern Ohio Medical Center for treatment before being transferred to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, according to the release.

On Monday, authorities in Manchester, Ohio, arrested a 15-year-old juvenile. He was charged with rape and is being held in the Ross County Juvenile Detention Center without bond.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective Jodi Conkel at 740-351-1091.
