Boy, 12, accuses woman of statutory rape

Friday, August 11, 2006

A 12-year-old boy has accused an 18-year-old woman of forcing him to have sex with her in a Cape Girardeau hotel room. The alleged statutory rape occurred on two different occasions on Tuesday and Wednesday on the city's north side, police spokesman Jason Selzer said. The boy was staying at the hotel with his 13-year-old former girlfriend and her mother, and the 18-year-old woman was an acquaintance. Police were investigating the allegations, but no arrests had been made as of Thursday afternoon, Selzer said.
