UPDATED May 2, 9:10 a.m.

Detectives have arrested a 15-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl inside her Queens home on Sunday morning.

The attack reportedly took place during the early morning hours of April 30 at a home on Francis Lewis Boulevard in Rosedale.

Based on a preliminary investigation, police determined that the perpetrator may have used a ladder to reach a window leading to the second-floor apartment where the victim resides. Once inside, the suspect attacked the young girl.

The incident was later reported to the 105th Precinct.

The suspect, whose identity was withheld due to his age, was charged early on Tuesday morning, May 2, with attempted rape, burglary and aggravated sexual abuse. The investigation is ongoing.
