CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A 13-year-old boy who groped several women at a southern New Jersey apartment complex will get treatment at a residential facility for juvenile sexual offenders.

Camden County prosecutors say the boy was ordered this week to spend 18 months at the facility. That will be followed by another 18 months of mandated aftercare.

The boy pleaded guilty in April to five counts of criminal sexual contact, He admitted that he groped or touched women inappropriately and used physical force on two of the women.

The first of the five groping incidents at the Autumn Ridge Apartments in Gloucester Township occurred in December 2013. The attacks then continued until the boy was captured there March 2, after a complex resident saw someone who matched the attacker’s description.
