The Phil­adelphia Po­lice De­part­ment’s Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit is in­vest­ig­at­ing a claim by a 13-year-old girl that two boys sexu­ally as­saul­ted her last Wed­nes­day in a Castor Gar­dens al­ley­way.

The girl re­portedly told po­lice that she was walk­ing home from school on the 1400 block of Fan­shawe St. at about 3:30 p.m. when the teen boys pulled her in­to an al­ley be­hind a row of homes and forced her to per­form sex acts.

When a neigh­bor spot­ted the trio, the boys ran, po­lice said. They were de­scribed as 14 to 16 years old and wore sweat shirts and sweat pants. ••
