Child Sexual Abuse


A 17-year-old Loves Park teen-ager has been charged with sexually assaulting a four-year-old boy.

Miguel Reffue was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault. Reffue's arrest came after it was reported the boy was molested at a northeast side church on Sunday.

Rockford police Chief Jeff Nielsen says the boy was attacked after he was escorted to a church restroom around 12 p.m. Its alleged Reffue was already waiting inside the bathroom. The boy ran from the restroom and told some adults what had happened.

Reffue is jailed on $50,000 bond.
