JONESBORO, Ark. – A disturbing police report in Jonesboro suggests a 6-year-old may be the victim of a sexual assault from another child.

At 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the incident report was taken at Jonesboro Police Department on Caraway Road. The complainant said she let her 6-year-old girl stay at her sister’s house while she was at work. The 6-year-old was present with another 9-year-old girl, her cousin, the report said.
