Two 10-year-old boys in Houston are facing up to 40 years in prison for s*xually assaulting an 8-year-old boy aboard a school bus in August, police said.
A security video from Aug. 25 caught the two boys pulling their pants down and forcing the younger boy to perform s*x acts on them, police told the Houston Chronicle.
NEWSMEN learned that the two suspects were arrested last week.
The victim’s mother told the Chronicle that she remembers her son coming home from Thompson Elementary School without his belt on or with his pants unbuttoned.
But she didn’t think twice about it until cops called her in late August and said the boy had been molested.
“He has a hard time sleeping,” the mother, who was not identified, told the newspaper. “He’s just been having a hard time. He cries a lot.”
The mother said she has pulled the boy from school.
