ORLAND — Two Orland boys, 16 and 17, are in the Glenn County Juvenile Hall, accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.
The older suspect was arrested last week. The second, who is 16 but turns 17 next month, was arrested Monday.
None of those involved were named because they are minors.
Orland police Sgt. JC Tolle said the boys are suspected of having sexual intercourse with the girl at least one each, and have allegedly confessed to the act.
Although it”s believed the sex was consensual, the boys face a serious charge of statutory rape because they are more than three years older than the alleged victim.
Tolle said the mother of the girl received information about the incidents and contacted police.
A medical examination wasn”t done on the victim, Tolle said, because the alleged rapes had taken place several days before they were reported.
The case has been turned over to the Glenn County Probation Department.
