2nd Boy, 13, Charged in Alleged Sex Attack at Yonkers School

Police say more arrests are likely


Authorities have charged a second student at a Yonkers school in connection with a sexual attack on a 13-year-old girl.     

The 13-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal sex act. Another 13-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday on the same charge.

Both were sent to a detention center in Valhalla.

Authorities say the girl was attacked on April 24 in a classroom of the Cross Hill Academy.

Her father filed a complaint with police two days later after becoming aware of the alleged attack.

The victim and the two boys all attend the academy.

Police say more arrests are likely.
