HOUSTON - The unthinkable happens to a mother when her 5-year-old son tells her that he has been sexually assaulted by another boy in northwest Houston.
That other boy is 12 years old.
The mother said the incident happened last week at their condo complex on Antoine, near West Gulf Bank. She said the two children were playing together, and when she called out for her son, they walked out of a vacant unit.
That is when her son told her the older boy assaulted him. KHOU 11 News will not show the woman s face, to protect the victim s identity.
I hate he did this to my baby and I m very upset, I really, my emotions, I ve been asking God to take this hatred off my heart, the mother said.
The mother said she took her son to the hospital, and the doctor confirmed that the boy was assaulted.
Police took the 12-year-old into custody for questioning, but they said that they are still investigating the case. No charges have been filed.
