Three under-10-years boys accused of rape

An 11-year-old girl was raped by three boys ages 8 and 9 in the woods near a suburban Atlanta apartment complex, officials said. The alleged rapists were held Monday in a detention center.

The alleged attack happened Thursday and the girl's mother reported it to authorities Sunday, Acworth police Capt. Wayne Dennard said.

"The juvenile victim stated that an 8-year-old boy and two 9-year-old boys that she had been playing with earlier pulled her into a wooded area, where one of the boys raped her," Dennard said.

The three boys were charged with rape, kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual assault, Dennard told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Their names were being withheld because of their age.

Calls to the Acworth Police Department and Cobb County prosecutors seeking further detail were not returned Monday morning.

Acworth is 28 miles (45 kilometers) north of Atlanta in the city's fast-growing outer suburbs.
