NOME (AP) -- A 15-year-old boy from the village of Gambell is being held in Nome for an alleged sexual assault on a three-year-old girl.
Alaska State Troopers said they received a report of an assault Sunday and flew to the village, located on Saint Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea.
The boy, whose name has not been released, was arrested and transported to Nome for detention. Troopers said he has been charged with second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree sexual abuse of a minor.
