Teen Molests Girl, 4, After Climbing Through Her Bedroom Window on a Ladder: Cops
Police arrested a Queens, N.Y., 15-year-old after finding his fingerprints in the home.
A New York teen has been arrested after cops say he climbed into the second floor bedroom of a 4-year-old girl and sexually assaulted her.
The little girl was in the care of several adults at her Queens home while her parents worked overnight shifts in the early morning hours of April 30, according to local reports, when cops say a 15-year-old climbed through her window using a ladder.
When the girl's parents arrived home, she complained of pain. The parents then reportedly found evidence someone had entered the room when the window was left open.
Investigators later found signs the girl was sexually assaulted. She told police that three "bad boys" molested her, the New York Daily News reported.
Police say they found fingerprints in the home and on a ladder that led them to an area 15-year-old boy. Cops also say the boy is seen leaving the home in surveillance footage.
When questioned, cops say the boy made incriminating statements.
He was arrested and charged with attempted rape, burglary and aggravated sex abuse, police said.
The suspect has not been identified.
