CLEVELAND (AP) - A juvenile court spokeswoman in Cleveland says two 12-year-old girls have pleaded guilty to delinquency charges in an assault last month on an 11-year-old autistic girl.

The two girls pleaded guilty to abduction, rioting and assault on Wednesday in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Juvenile Court. The spokeswoman says the girls have been ordered not to contact the victim and remain under home detention. Their sentencing is scheduled for June 10.

A police report says the girl was attacked at a Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority complex on April 25.

A 30-year-old Cleveland woman was arrested for allegedly goading the 12-year-olds to attack the autistic girl. Her case has been referred to the grand jury.
