HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — A 10-year-old girl is facing rape charges from playing an alleged game of “doctor” with a group of children from her housing complex.

The girl, who is only identified as “Ashley,” was charged by police for aggravated sexual assault.

In April, Ashley was among a group of children who were playing doctor, KRIV-TV reports. A neighbor saw the children and called the mother of a 4-year-old boy who was also playing in the group.

Houston police say that Ashley was inappropriately touching the 4-year-old boy.

“I’ve never dealt with a child this young being accused of a crime,” Quanell X, who is working with Ashley’s family, told KRIV. “In fact this was nothing more than inappropriate horseplay that has now led to a child that is 10-years-old being charged with aggravated rape.”

Ashely was held for four days in the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center in June.

Ashley’s mother calls the situation a “nightmare.”

“It’s a nightmare even having to go through something like this because that’s my baby, that’s my baby and just the thought of her going through something like this it hurts me,” the mom, who wanted to remain anonymous, told KRIV.

She went on to state that she was not allowed to sit-in on the 45-minute questioning of her daughter.

Ashley’s hearing will be in October for sexual assault charges.
