LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville Metro Police have arrested a 16-year-old in connection with two sexual assaults near the University of Louisville campus.

Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says the teen was arrested Friday. He’s charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy, two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of kidnapping and one count of second-degree arson.

Louisville Metro Police say the first incident occurred Sept. 12, when a woman driving near campus was carjacked by two people, one of whom was armed. The males sexually assaulted the victim, then fled in her car.

In the second incident Sept. 13, two males, still driving the first woman’s car, abducted a University of Louisville student at gunpoint. After she was sexually assaulted, the suspects freed her and set the car on fire before fleeing.
