A 15-year-old boy was arrested yesterday for allegedly sexually assaulting a three-year-old from Scioto County.
The Scioto County Sheriff says the juvenile has been charged with one count of rape, a felony of the first degree and is being held in the Ross County Juvenile Detention Center without bond.
The arrest came after deputies responded to a call last Tuesday from a Nile Township resident stating her three-year-old son had been sexually assaulted.
An investigation led to the arrest of the suspect.
He will appear in Portsmouth Juvenile Court on a later date.
