WOONSOCKET, R.I.—Authorities in Woonsocket say a 17-year-old boy beat, bit and raped a 2-year-old girl he was baby-sitting.
Police say the alleged incident occurred on Sunday and the boy was arrested early Monday morning after the child's mother called 911.
Lieutenant Timothy Paul says the teenager, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, is being held pending a hearing to be held in Family Court no later than Friday.
The child was left in the care of the suspect by her 24-year-old mother, who is also the teen's girlfriend.
The child was taken to a hospital where doctors found bruises and bite marks on her body as well as evidence of a sexual assault.
The teen is charged with first-degree sexual assault by means of forcible rape and first-degree child abuse.
Dammit...I hope they decide to charge him as an adult and release the name and mug.
Quick!! Someone shut down his oxygen supply.
