A 14-year-old Detroit boy has been charged in the kidnapping and rape of a 26-year-old woman in a vacant house.
The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Wednesday that the teen's bond was set at $100,000.
He's charged with six counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to commit second-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping and felonious assault.
He's accused of walking behind the woman on a northwest Detroit street on March 3, putting a knife to her throat and forcing her into the abandoned house, then raping her.
A witness saw the attack and called 911.
His preliminary examination is scheduled March 21.
The prosecutor's office says he was given an adult designation, which means he could be sentenced as an adult if convicted.

    This is why you should always be aware of your surroundings. If you carry yourself like a victim you can become a victim, put the cell phone down, keep your eyes open, PAY ATTENTION and FIGHT BACK!!

    Good heavens, I certainly hope he is charged and sentenced as an adult, despite his age. This certainly was so-called adult behavior and crime.
