BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – A night of skating at a local rink ends with a girl in the hospital and a teenager in juvenile court.
Belleville police allege a 16-year-old Shiloh, Illinois boy assaulted a 12 year-old girl outside the Fun Spot Skating Rink near Belleville Saturday night around 10:30.
Police were called to the scene.
The boy has now been charged with two counts of misdemeanor criminal sexual abuse in juvenile court. He was arrested at his home Sunday.
St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly confirmed the charges but could not comment further because it is a juvenile case. Also the boy’s name won’t be released because juvenile court records are closed to the public.
The girl was first taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Belleville and then later transferred to a St. Louis hospital, where she was treated and released
