An Oklahoma 11-year-old has been arrested over claims he raped his six-year-old sister. The boy, who has not been named, allegedly assaulted his sibling as she tried to do homework in her bedroom on Wednesday.
His mother has also been detained over claims she failed to report the incident. A seven-year-old cousin was also present at the time of the alleged attack, with the two boys said to have asked the girl to pull her pants off.
Both boys have accussed the other of carrying out the alleged rape. But the girl told an Oklahoma Department of Human Services worker, who was tipped off about the case, that both of them “put their things in her and it hurt.” She also claimed her mother declined to take her to the hospital and had ordered her not to tell anyone about what had happened.
The mother allegedly admitted this to the worker. Police officers arriving at the girl’s home on Friday arrested her brother on a charge of rape in the first degree. The cousin’s legal status is currently unclear.
The girl herself was taken to the hospital and has been placed in protective custody.
