11-year-old Iowa boy charged with sexual abuse

Posted:

ROCK RAPIDS (AP) -- An 11-year-old northwest Iowa boy has been charged with sexually abusing three children who range in age from 5 to 8 years old.

Lyon County Sheriff Blythe Bloemendaal says the boy is charged with six counts of second-degree sexual abuse, which is a class B felony.

He says the boy and the alleged victims knew each other, but he wouldn't say whether they're related.

Authorities have not released the boy's name.

It was not immediately clear Saturday whether the boy is in custody. The sheriff says he will probably be tried in juvenile court.
