July 8, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

A 12-year-old boy has been arrested in connection to the attempted rape of a woman in Ridgewood earlier this week.

The boy faces a series of charges, including sex abuse, in relation to the incident that took place near Gates Avenue and Cypress Avenue Monday morning.

The suspect allegedly followed the 37-year-old victim into her apartment building at around 8 a.m. and pushed the woman to the floor, police said.

The boy threatened her by saying that he had a knife and then tried to remove her clothing, according to police.

He ran outside and fled the scene on foot after the woman fought back, police said.

Police initially described the suspect as a Hispanic man, aged between 20 to 30 years old.

The NYPD said they had arrested and charged a 12-year-old boy in the case Tuesday night.

Police charged the boy with sex abuse, assault, robbery, burglary, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

This is not a “BOY” when he commits adult crimes such as these. Age is not something to look at in this incident, the actions and severity of the acts attempted is what the main focus should be on.

“The Boy” is obviously on drugs. C his nose play, probably crack cocaine which enhances libido, Find the parents, they should be responsible for their children……put the boy in house arrest, no outside contact, the system is screwd up if he goes to juvenile detention, he’ll just learn to do the job better next time, and there will be a next time. house arrest in his room, closet if no room with video camera monitoring him, no cell, no tv, no internet,. just selected books to read, he will learn to read. but, some idiot judge and DA will put him out in the strret again “cause it is first offense” Que Lindo!, Que Bendicion! our system sucks, needs overhaul, changes in laws and better ideas on how to rehab criminals, jails r not working, jails teach them a better criminal career….
