The boys – two of whom are 9 and one 8 – were arrested by Acworth, Ga., Police, Sunday night, according to Police Capt. Wayne Dennard, who said the alleged rape occurred Thursday and was reported to police late Saturday.

The girl said she had been playing with the boys, but they dragged her into a wooded area, where one of them raped her.

The boys, who have been charged with rape, kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual assault, are being held at the Marietta Regional Youth Detention Center.

"I have never seen anything like this," Dennard told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
