An indictment was filed yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court against a 15-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy in the bathroom of a South Toledo arcade.
Cristoffer Curey was indicted on one count of kidnapping and rape. He is being held in the county jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
Authorities say young Curey, who was living in a Pemberville, Ohio, group home, lured the victim into the restroom at Nickelworld, 2545 South Reynolds Rd., on Jan. 1. The defendant who has prior sex crime convictions was certified in March to stand trial as an adult. The teen would face a mandatory sentence of 10 years to life in prison if convicted of the rape charge.
