DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 4-year-old girl has been sexually assaulted outside her northwest Des Moines apartment building.

Police say the girl was playing outside with her 6-year-old brother on Wednesday when a man she didn't know led her away to a tree line behind some garages and assaulted her. She then ran back to her apartment and told her mother what happened.

No arrest has been reported.
