Naugatuck police have arrested three Waterbury teens accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in the woods near her Naugatuck home.
The victim’s mother called police just after 7:30 p.m. on Monday. She told them that her daughter had just come home and said she’d been sexually assaulted by three boys in their early teens, police said.
The victim provided a description of the suspects, who police found a short time later in the area. The victim positively identified the suspects, police said.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for evaluation related to the sexual assault.
All three teen suspects were charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a child.
They were all taken to Bridgeport Juvenile Detention and were scheduled to appear in Waterbury Juvenile Court on Tuesday.
