A boy has become the youngest rapist in the UK after he admitted attacking a nine-year-old boy 15 times.

The 11-year-old boy’s crimes were discovered when the victim’s mother heard the boy whispering over a baby monitor in her son’s bedroom.

He has also admitted attacking a seven-year-old boy and attacked a third disabled child aged 11 while he was on police bail.

However, the boy who cannot be named for legal reasons pleaded guilty to one charge of raping the same boy fifteen times and further admitted three charges of sexual touching.

He is now in custody awaiting his sentencing at Preston Crown Court at a date yet to be confirmed.

Shocking details were heard in court that on May 29th, 2016 the defendant was playing with the boy in his room when his mother began to hear whispering over the baby monitor.

She then entered the room and found her nine-year-old son being raped on the bedroom floor.

When specialist police officers spoke to the defendant they discovered that he had been raping the nine-year-old every time they played together telling him to keep what was happening a secret.

Police then discovered the defendant had then touched another boy aged seven over his clothing and finally while on police bail he sexually touched an 11-year-old disabled boy over his trousers.
