(WXYZ) - A Westland teenager is accused of raping a nine-year-old girl at their neighborhood pool.
The boy, who was 16-years-old at the time of the alleged rape, is facing multiple charges including 1st degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.
He's set to undergo competency testing before his preliminary examination takes place.
Investigators with Westland Police say on September 1st at the River Bend Apartments, the teen forced the girl into a bathroom near the pool where he allegedly raped and choked her.
Once the teen left, the girl ran home and told her mother what had happened.
We're told the girl had been swimming at the pool by herself.
Police say the girl knew her young attacker because they both reside in the same apartment complex.
