A 13-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday following an investigation prompted when a 5-year-old girl told her mother that she had been touched inappropriately at a home day care in west Wichita last month, police said.

The child said it happened on the morning of June 27 at a house, where the boy was taken into custody on Tuesday, according to police documents.

The victim was taken to Wesley Medical Center for a medical examination, according to a police report, then to the Exploited and Missing Child Unit for questioning. The suspect was transported to EMCU for interrogation and then booked into the Juvenile Intake and Assessment Center on suspicion of rape and aggravated criminal sodomy.
