Two 12-year-old boys charged with raping a 6-year-old girl at a school.

One of two 12-year-old boys accused of raping a six-year-old girl at a primary school on Sydney’s northern beaches has faced court.

The boy, accompanied by his parents, faced Hornsby Children’s Court on Thursday accused of two counts of aggravated indecency in company and one count of sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 10 during school hours, reports 9 news.

His lawyer did not enter a plea on his behalf.

Last month his co-accused pleaded not guilty to four counts of aggravated sexual assault and two of having sexual intercourse with a girl under 10 during school hours.

The pair allegedly committed several of the offences while in each other’s company sometime between 8am on June 24 and 4pm on July 1.

But the second boy allegedly committed offences involving the indecent assault and sexual intercourse of the six year-old girl on August 16 between 8am and 4pm.

Both boys have been excused from attending the next court appearance on November 24 when the matters will be dealt alongside each other.

Previous UPDATE 22 September

One of the 12-year-old boys accused of raping a six-year-old girl at a Sydney northern beaches primary school has pleaded not guilty, reports 9 news.

The boy’s lawyer James Viney entered not guilty pleas this morning at Hornsby Children’s Court to four counts of aggravated sexual assault and two of having sexual intercourse with a girl under 10.

The boy, who was accompanied by his parents, had his bail varied so he could go on a Queensland family holiday.

Magistrate Louise McManus excused the boy from attending on the next court date, November 24.

It is alleged the boy was joined by another boy, also 12, and sexually assaulted and had sexual intercourse with the girl during school hours.

The offences are believed to have taken place over three separate occasions between June 24 and August 16.

The other boy is due to appear in the Hornsby Children’s Court on October 20.

Previous news on this story 1 September

Police allege the incidents, which involved a younger female student, occurred last month. Parents at the school are in the process of being notified.

7 News shared a statement: Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad were alerted by the Dept of Education following incidents at a primary school on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The assault happened on school grounds, in school time.

Following an extensive investigation, two boys, both aged 12, were arrested at Chatswood Police Station on Tuesday (30 August 2016). One boy was charged with four counts of aggravated sexual assault and two counts of sexual intercourse with child under 10.

He has been granted bail and is due to appear at a children’s court on Thursday 22 September 2016. The other boy was charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault and sexual intercourse with child under 10. He has been granted bail and is due to appear at a children’s court on Thursday 20 October 2016.

Police will allege the incidents, which involved a younger female student, occurred last month. Parents and carers of students at the school are in the process of being notified, and police request the community respect the privacy of the young people involved.

NSW Police Force works closely with the Dept of Education and Family and Community Services to ensure the safety of all students, and additional support has been made available at the school.

The Child Abuse Squad is comprised of detectives who are specially trained to investigate crimes against children, including sexual assault, physical abuse and serious cases of neglect.

More to come on this story as it breaks.

Sadly, this is not an isolated incident.  Just this week we reported on a very similar story about an intellectually disabled 6 year old primary school girl who was lured into the school toilets and abused by two male students while two others stood guard! READ THAT STORY HERE.

  • If the parents still insist on going for a holiday the boy should be placed in remand. They committed “adult” crimes.

  • I can’t believe that one of the boys were granted bail and told he didn’t have to appear at the next court date just so he could go on a family holiday. Why should he be allowed to go off and have fun. Where is the punishment in that.

  • Reward bad and criminal behaviour with a Qld holiday? What? I really hope the Justice Department gets this right. We’re all watching.

  • Hope justice will be done !
    I have a bit of a hard time with the request that the communityvrespects the privacy of those involved. For the girl yes, but respecting the privacy of the boys who committed the crime ?? Where did they tespect the privacy of the girl involved, what respect is that ??

  • “The offences are believed to have taken place over three separate occasions between June 24 and August 16.” Must admit I never knew this piece of information.

    Why is this —-allowed to go on a holiday and just what sort of court justice is happening here. ?
    Seriously these boys should be locked away.

  • Send in the bikies to deal with the boys and their parents. Love the Police respect their privacy. Are they are wealthy family and the matter hushed up.
    They are old enough to commit this vile crime and old enough to be named.
    Should not have been allowed to go on a holiday but put into an institution and mum and dad charged with neglect and also serve a gaol term. Hope the girls family do not fall for being told to hush things up.

  • So the parents are rewarding the son with a Queensland holiday???? What are the parents thinking. This poor girl has gone through enough and they vary the date so he can have a holiday. How disgusting is this. Im disgusted that the parents even considering going on a holiday when they should think of what their son has done to the life of the girl. And what if he does something while away. Disgusted and feel sorry for the girl.

  • I am aware that 12 year olds can be sexually active – but they don’t normally rape. This is a horrible case and I hope the correct actions will be put in place.

  • This is disgraceful. How do they learn these things at such a young age. I hope the young girl gets all the support she needs and these boys are dealt with appropriately.
