Sun-Times Media Wire

A 12-year-old boy remains in juvenile custody Monday morning as police investigate the alleged sexual assault of a 3-year-old hearing-impaired girl on a school bus Friday afternoon in north suburban Gurnee.

At 3:25 p.m. Friday, police were notified by Gurnee District 56 school officials that the girl's mother contacted the school after her daughter said she was "hurt" by some boys on the bus, a Gurnee police release said. The girl was examined at Lake Forest Hospital.

She had been picked up by her mother near their home in Wadsworth sometime after 3 p.m., when just two other students -- a 12-year-old Gurnee boy and a 9-year-old Waukegan boy -- were on the bus, the release said.

The 71-year-old bus driver said he was unaware of anything improper happening on the bus, police said.

Police were able to review surveillance from a camera in the bus, one of several installed in school district's buses this summer, Gurnee police Cmdr. Jay Patrick said Monday morning. It was the first time the camera has been used for a police incident.

The surveillance footage led police to pick up the 12-year-old from his Gurnee home about 7:35 p.m. Sunday, Patrick said. He was taken to the Depke Juvenile Justice Center in Vernon Hills, where he was held in the detention area.

The boy remained in custody Monday morning and charges were pending in juvenile court were pending as the Lake County State's Attorney's office investigates, Patrick said.

I would have some questions for the parents of that 12 year old................wouldn't you???. No one is saying a word about that. Can a 12 year old really be responsible for something like this? I'm just not sure, I would assume he is being abused himself.

 What the heck was a 3 year old doing on a bus with older children??? && Hell ya I would be asking questions of the parents. What the heck, something has to be going on at home to make him think that its okay to do to others.

Wow...

At 12, he may not be being abused, but he may have access to inappropriate materials. Such as unrestricted access to the internet and has seen a few too many porns, he may have found mom or dads stash of naughty magazines, or possibly even video-dvd- porns.

It is possible he has been abused himself as well, but I'm seeing a curious preteen who hasn't had strict discipline as to what is ok and what is not ok.

What they need to do is evaluate him and see where he learned such activity to determine if it is neglectful and inattentive parenting, or see if the boy has been abused.

Unfortunately, his behaviour is normal for his age, but only normal with other kids his own age, not on three year old girls.

I wouldn't think you would have to question the parents. He's 12 yrs old. By that age he knows not to touch others inappropriately. Just because a kid starts molesting others at a young age doesn't mean the parents have done anything wrong, it means the 12 yr old is a sicko and deserved to be arrested and detained.

No he was not hearing impaired. Due to the school cut backs in this area only children being buses to special or private schools would be on special buses.

When theyre deaf they start preschool at 3 wether theyre potty trained or not and sometimes they do have older kids on the bus with special needs . Its just sad that the bus driver didnt notice anything.

Due to the cut backs in the schools here in Illinois, they have had to combine pre-school through 8th grade on some buses.
