Logan Andrew West, 18, of Stow, Oh., is behind bars, charged with rape of a child under 10.  On Saturday, police and EMS arrived at a Ravenna Township home, responding to a report of an injured 15-month-old girl.  When the baby was brought to Akron Children’s Hospital, medical staff determined that her injuries were the result of a sexual assault. West, the boyfriend of the victim’s mother, was present at the home when the assault took place, along with several others. West was arrested Monday and booked into Portage County Jail. He is due to be arraigned today.

Last week, police in Olathe, Kansas, arrested an 18-year-old woman on charges of sodomy in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of a 3-year-old boy. The accused, Ashleigh Geist, had recently testified against her own father, who was on trial for molesting Geist and her younger sister. And in Texas, another 18-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting two young girls, aged 3 and 4, and forcing them to drink his semen.
