Three fourth graders have been charged with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old classmate in the restroom of a West Philadelphia School.
Capt. John Darby, commander of the Special Victims Unit, said the two 10-year-old boys and one 11-year-old were arrested Monday after a three-week investigation.
They have been charged as juveniles with attempted rape, deviant sexual intercourse, unlawful restraint and related offenses, Darby said.
The 8-year-old boy, an advanced student, was sexually assaulted in October in a restroom at Bryant School, 6001 Cedar Ave., officials said.
