NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 13-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the rape of an 8-year-old girl in eastern New Orleans.

New Orleans Police say the girl reported she was outside of an apartment complex about 2 p.m. last Friday, when a boy lured her into an alley behind the building and sexually assaulted her. Detectives received a match from DNA evidence collected from the incident that identified the teenager as the suspect.

Authorities arrested the juvenile Friday and booked him with one count of aggravated rape. It was unknown if the suspect, whose name was not released because of his age, has an attorney who could comment about the case.
