Girl juvenile arrested for sexual assault in Boulder City

Updated Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2009 | 11:56 a.m.

Boulder City Police have arrested a girl after reports of sexual assault and lewdness with another minor were reported at St. Jude's Ranch for Children.

Officers received a call about 12:10 p.m. Monday and interviewed several people at St. Jude's, a temporary home and shelter for abandoned and abused children, police said.

A girl whose age was not revealed was arrested on two counts of sexual assault and three counts of open and gross lewdness, police said. Her name has been withheld because of her juvenile status and the nature of the charges, police said. Police did not reveal whether the other minor was a boy or a girl or if the other minor was older or younger.

The girl was taken to the Clark County Juvenile Detention Facility in Las Vegas, Boulder City police said.

Detective Michelle Isham said that the investigation is ongoing. At this time it does not appear that any of the staff members at St. Jude's had any knowledge of the incident, she said.

The investigation continues. Anyone with pertinent information is asked to call Detective Michelle Isham at (702) 293-9224, ext. 376.
