A boy has become the youngest rapist in the country after he admitted attacking a nine-year-old boy 15 times.
The victim’s mother discovered what was happening when she heard the boy, who was 11, whispering over a baby monitor in her son’s bedroom.
He also attacked a seven-year-old boy and while on bail assaulted a disabled 11-year-old boy.
The boy, from Blackpool and who is now 12, cannot be named for legal reasons.
He pleaded guilty to one charge of raping the same boy fifteen times and three charges of sexual touching.
He was sent to custody at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court ahead of his sentencing at Preston Crown Court at a later date.
Prosecutor, Kerry Grieve, said the offences took place between April last year and last month.
On May 29 this year the defendant was playing with a boy in his bedroom when his mother heard whispering over the baby monitor.
She walked into the bedroom to find the defendant raping her nine year old son on the bedroom floor.
