A juvenile was arraigned for allegedly sexually assaulting two children at knifepoint. Mercedes police filed the initial report. The suspect’s mother was present at the hearing, pleading for his release. His defense says that the teen has no prior criminal history, and also suffers from ADHD.
The alleged weapon hasn’t been recovered, and the investigation is ongoing. The judge ordered the defendant to take a psychological evaluation. We aren’t releasing how the suspect knew the victims, to protect their safety.
