The alleged assault was reported by a family member the evening of June 7. The girl, who is younger than 18, went to the hospital and underwent an exam so evidence could be collected, Steward said.

The boy, who was arrested June 25, was conditionally released by a juvenile community corrections officer following the arrest.

The case will go through the juvenile court in Lewiston.
