A 14-year-old boy was charged today in New York with robbery and raping a woman in front of her four-year-old daughter, according to the Suffolk (eastern New York) District Attorney’s Office.

Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney announced the charges against the teenager, whose name was not provided because he is a minor, for the events that occurred on April 19. He explained that on that day, the 23-year-old woman heard noises in the house and thought it was her husband who had returned from work. But shortly afterward, the minor and another man, who is still wanted by the authorities, entered the room where the woman was with the girl.

The 14-year-old minor took the woman’s cell phone and forced her to unlock it, and while the man was looking for objects to steal, the teenager allegedly raped her in front of her daughter.

He then dragged her into a hallway where he continued to rape her. He then returned her to the room where her daughter was, whom he also tried to take into the hallway.

It was then that the woman fought with the minor, who took her to another room where he showed her the knife he had, causing a wound on the left side of her face. She was also stabbed in the chest.

The couple left after stealing several things from the house. The woman was treated at a nearby hospital where stitches were taken and DNA evidence was collected, the prosecutor further explained.

Two days later the juvenile was arrested on unrelated charges, but admitted to stealing from the woman’s home, although he denied raping her.

DNA testing linked him to the rape and the case was brought before a grand jury, which returned charges as a juvenile offender for rape, criminal sexual act, assault, robbery and endangering the welfare of a child, which were formally read to him today by a Suffolk County Juvenile Court judge.
