KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City mother called police to her home after she says she caught her 17-year-old son sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

The woman, who isn’t being named to protect the identity of the victim, said she was in bed early Sunday morning at about 12:30 a.m., when she got up to get a glass of water from the kitchen, she told a Kansas City police detective in a statement.

She says she walked down the hallway and saw her son walking out onto the balcony, away from the area where the girl was sleeping. She said she saw that her son was aroused.

The mother asked the girl what happened and she told the mother that she woke up to the teen touching her, according to the statement. When she tried to push him away, the girl said he touched her further.

The mother called 911 and the teen fled the residence. He was later arrested and reportedly told police ‘I did it.’

The teen is expected to be charged with sodomy.
