A teenage boy was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly raping two young girls before forcing them to have sex with each other, according to police in California.

Eunice police said that they have arrested the 13-year-old boy on Friday, after being accused of raping an 8 and 5-year-old girl at the same time.

The boy, who was not identified, was charged with two counts of first-degree rape, one count of aggravated assault and one count of sexual assault.

If convicted, the boy faces up to life in prison, which means until he turns 21 years old. According to the police investigation, the boy first raped the two girls.
