Twelve-year-old boy charged with incest, sexual assault

 Lethbridge Regional Police have charged a 12-year-old boy for sexually assaulting his two younger sisters.

 Last month police received information that a 12-year-old boy was engaging in sexual activity with his 10-year-old and eight-year-old sisters. An investigation was initiated and determined that the boy sexually assaulted both girls on multiple occasions between May and July 2014.

 The boy, who cannot be identified, is charged with two counts each of incest, sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching. He was released from custody with conditions that he not be in the presence of anyone under 12 years of age unless supervised by a responsible adult and to follow all house rules as set out by his parents.

 The boy made his first appearance in youth court last week and the matter was adjourned until Aug. 27.

 No further information will be released.
