Arrests occur in string of sexual assault cases in nearby Davis

Many of our Roseville readers are probably parents of teenage children and they know that sometimes this particular age group is prone to irrational and unpredictable behavior. We all go through this age of transition, with varying degrees of success. However, some teenage children find themselves dealing with situations that are a bit more serious than many average teens go through, and that appears to be the case with a number of teens associated with a group home in nearby Davis.

According to the reports, there have been a number of alleged instances of sexual assault among the residents of the FamiliesFirst group home in Davis. And recently a 17-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly assaulting a 13-year-old girl who had run away from the facility. The Yolo County boy was being held in a juvenile detention facility.

This wasn't the first arrest to occur in association with residents of the facility. Two previous arrests occurred when allegations surfaced that two young boys held down an 11-year-old girl and raped her. All of the cases so far appear to only involve juveniles. There were no initial indications as to whether or not alcohol or drugs were also involved in these incidents.

For the time being it appears that the cases involving the FamiliesFirst group home will play out through the juvenile justice system. However, the authorities are apparently still investigating a number of incidents. For the children involved, both those arrested and those who are the alleged victims, these cases could have a huge impact on their lives going forward. Teens or not, it is clear that there could be major behavior problems at the Davis FamiliesFirst group home.
