A teenage boy admitted to raping a 5-year-old girl twice when questioned by police recently.

The 14-year-old boy had agreed to babysit the victim, whom he knows, at her West Seminary Street home, Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Seth Fry said. The boy was visiting from another town at the time, but the detective didn't elaborate.

Fry said the rapes happened on two different days while the pair were alone in the girl's residence.

When the victim's family returned home Monday afternoon, the girl told them what reportedly happened, Fry said. They took the girl to Fisher-Titus Medical Center and after hospital staff reported the suspected incidents to police, officers started an investigation. Police received the complaint April 21.

Officer Larry Noftz responded to Fisher-Titus and was at the hospital 80 minutes, according to the police report.

On Friday, Capt. Mike Conney said the incident was under investigation and declined to provide any details. On Sunday, Fry said he believes the investigation is complete.

After being questioned, boy was charged with rape and transported to the Seneca County Youth Center.
