A 9 year-old Overland Park, Kansas boy was sexually assaulted by a 14 year-old boy while playing on a playground at Heartland Elementary School. The alleged incident unfolded when the victim and a friend went to the playground to play where there were a few other kids playing. The victim was asked to help another kid find his glasses. He was led to a nearby bush where the attacker pulled a knife and forced the boy to perform a sex act. The 14 year-old is now in custody facing aggravated sex crime charges.
