A 14-year-old California boy was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery, carjacking, attempted murder
kidnapping and the sexual assault of a 65-year-old woman.
The victim alleges that the boy kidnapped her at gunpoint in front of a Toys “R” Us and forced her to drive to another location where he sexually assaulted and beat her. He bound her with duct tape and threw her in a ditch where she was discovered by passing motorists. He then drove away in the victim’s vehicle and called one of her family members to demand ransom. Officers apprehended the suspect and his replica handgun after he returned to the store in the victim's vehicle.
