NEW ORLEANS (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A 14-year-old boy has been arrested, accused of raping a teen-aged girl in New Orleans' Behrman Park.

New Orleans police say officers booked the teenager Friday into the Juvenile Bureau on one count of aggravated rape. His name was not released because of his age. It was not immediately clear if the suspect had an attorney.

Investigators say the victim was walking through the park on her way home June 21. Police say the teenager approached the girl and they got into a physical altercation at which time the suspect overpowered her and committed the sexual assault.

Investigators say the victim escaped and the suspect fled.

A concerned citizen notified police.

The suspect's identity was uncovered through a follow up investigation and the victim positively identified the alleged attacker.
