13-year-old boy arrested, accused of raping 3 relatives

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police have arrested a 13-year-old boy accused of raping his three relatives on multiple occasions over the last two years.

Tyler Gamble, a spokesman for the department, says the alleged victims include a 13-year-old girl, an 11-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy.

The arrest came after an incident Thursday. Gamble says the suspect is a relative of the victims. He didn't provide further details.

Neither the suspect's name nor identities of the victims were released because of their ages.

An investigation is ongoing.
