WARREN - City police said they are working with Trumbull County Children Services to investigate the reported sexual assaults of three local children.
Earlier this month, a city woman told police that three young family members, each of whom she retains custody, were the victims of an assault incident on Oct. 9, according to a police report. The police report indicates that the children are 8, 9 and 11 years old.
Officers said they cannot elaborate on the details of an ongoing investigation. They did confirm that Children Services has been called to assist with the matter and that CSB caseworkers interviewed the children about the allegations this week.
"Now we are waiting to see what the results of interviews are and go from there," Warren Detective Michael Currington said.
CSB director Tim Schaffner also said that he cannot comment on an ongoing investigation.
However, he said on Tuesday that in cases dealing with reports of child sexual assaults, children's services works in cooperation with law enforcement, the Children's Advocacy Center and the Trumbull County juvenile prosecutor's office to investigate the allegations. He said CSB puts a safety plan into place for the children immediately and that specially trained investigators conduct the interviews.
