ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 14-year-old boy is accused of molesting his 9-year-old sister in Alakanuk.
The boy was arrested Monday on a charge of sexual abuse of a minor in the fourth degree, Alaska State Troopers said.
Troopers said the incident took place Feb. 6 at a foster home where the children were staying. During the investigation the boy told troopers he himself had been sexually molested on Feb. 5 while the siblings' parents were out of town, troopers said. That claim is still under investigation.
The boy was taken to Bethel Youth Facility.
The sister also told troopers that an older male sexually abused her while he was giving her a snowmachine ride in February, according to troopers. They are still investigating that case and have no suspects.
