Youths charged with sex assault at Riverside County school

Two youths charged with statutory rape and other crimes at a Riverside County high school are scheduled to appear Thursday in Juvenile Court.

The suspects, ages 15 and 16, attacked a girl Sept. 25 at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Eastvale, according to law enforcement authorities. The assault took place after classes ended.

The youths have been charged with one count each of statutory rape, sodomy by force in concert, sexual battery and oral copulation by force, said John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney's office.

They are scheduled to appear for a detention hearing in Juvenile Court. Such hearings are typically open, Hall said, but the victim has requested that the proceedings be confidential.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department said the assault was an "isolated incident and the involved victim and suspects have been identified."
