Harrington Police on Sunday arrested a 13-year-old Harrington teen for offensive touching and criminal mischief under $1,000.
Police say last September they responded to reports of a juvenile being sexually assaulted by another juvenile on the playground at Lake Forest South Elementary. Officers questioned the victim and determined that no sexual assault occurred; however, officers did determine that while the boy and girl were at the playground, they got into a fight and the boy damaged the girl’s phone and grabbed her by the arm and pulled her off some playground equipment causing her to fall to the ground.
The teen turned himself in to police on Sunday; after being charged, he was released to the custody of his parents pending a future court appearance in Kent County Family Court.
