CLAREMORE -- A 13-year-old Rogers County boy was arrested Monday on an allegation he sexually abused an 8-year-old girl.
Rogers County sheriff's deputies were called to a northern Rogers County neighborhood sometime Monday evening after the girl's parent witnessed the abuse while the children were reportedly playing in a yard at a residence, Sheriff Scott Walton said Tuesday.
"It is unfortunate that this has taken place," Walton said, who did not disclose details of the alleged abuse. "We usually see this (crime) involving an adult, not when the (suspect) and victim are so young."
The alleged incident occurred in a rural area north of Claremore, the sheriff said.
The boy is in custody at a juvenile facility, he said.
