Thirteen-year-old boys held on sex charges

Two Augusta 13 year olds are being held on aggravated sodomy charges after two young girls said they made them perform sexual acts.

A third suspect is also being sought, Richmond County sheriff's investigators said.


The girls. 12 and 9, said the boys made them go behind a vacant building Tuesday in the 2200 block of Woodward Avenue and perform oral sex, said Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew.


At this time investigators are not sure if a 7-year-old girl was also a victim. While she has mentioned her victimization, more questioning will be needed to verify, Chew said.


Investigators are also not yet sure if any threats were made on the girls, Chew said.


The two boys are being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center, Chew said.
