LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 17-year-old boy has been accused of molesting a 7-year-old girl at a public swimming pool in Lincoln.

The teen was charged Thursday with first-degree sexual assault in connection to the alleged incident on July 31 at Irvingdale Pool.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1BlaZ9Y ) the girl told police that the teen approached her at the shallow end of the pool and put his hand down the front of her swimming suit and rubbed her.

The teen was later taken to a youth detention center after a juvenile probation officer evacuated him.

The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles accused of crimes.
