A young boy was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping an 8-year-old girl, police in Delaware said.

Harrington Police said that they have charged the 13-year-old boy on Thursday, in connection with the rape of the girl.

The child voluntarily surrendered to police. The suspect was booked into the Stevenson House Juvenile Detention Center in Milford, and his bail was set at $5,000.

The girl told someone that she was raped in the boy’s home. The Division of Family Services was notified and they contacted the police to report the assault that took place at the home on the 200 block of Delaware Avenue.

In August, a 10-year-old girl was arrested and charged with rape after she was accused of raping a 4-year-old boy, according to police reports in Texas. The mother of the girl who was accused of raping the boy in her apartment complex, said that police officers have it all wrong.

“She was just being a kid, having fun and playing,” she said. “She did not know that she was doing something wrong,” she also said. According to the mother, the girl has been accused of raping the boy in the courtyard of the complex.

Houston Police confirmed that the rape incident was reported. A sex crimes investigator was assigned to the case and the arrest was made.
