A woman from the Browns Ferry area of the county filed a report Aug. 17 alleging her 4-year-old daughter had been sexually assaulted by two boys, ages 13 and 9.
The report said the daughter told her mother about the incident.
The woman said her daughter and son were outside playing with the two suspects when her son went inside to check the time.
That’s when the suspects reportedly took the girl inside a camper and molested her.
They are also accused of exposing themselves to the girl.
When the girl’s brother walked back out, he found them in the camper but did not see that acts taking place, the report states.
When the woman was told what happened, she went to the home of the suspects and informed their parents then she called 911.
The parent of the 13-year-old told an investigator his son is autistic and does not know right from wrong.
He said his son could not tell him what happened.
The case is still under investigation.
Georgetown County Treasurer Loretta Washington-Cooper called a deputy to her office Aug. 12, because of a 61-year-old woman causing a disturbance in her office.

The woman also reportedly said Washington “better watch her back.”
The incident was witnessed by three other employees.

A man from Kingsbury Place in the Beneventum community said he was harassed over the phone by a 26-year-old Georgetown man.
