Boys Charged With Raping Twin 6-Year-Old Girls

Five boys have been charged with repeatedly raping and sodomizing two twin six-year-old girls in and around a Kansas City day-care center.

The four 13-year-old boys and an 11-year-old boy are accused of sexually assaulting the girls in the basement of a day care center and in a nearby shed. A juvenile court has charged each boy with six counts of aggravated criminal sodomy. Two of the suspects will also face an additional two counts of rape.

It is believed that the girls had been left alone in the center when the boys found them. Police were notified the day following the attacks, when the twin girls told their mother what the boys had done to them.
