NY teen pleads guilty in sex attacks vs woman, child

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A Westchester County teenager has pleaded guilty in sex attacks against a woman and an 11-year-old girl.

District Attorney Jane DiFiore says Javon Roberts of Mount Vernon pleaded guilty Tuesday to rape and criminal sexual act.

Authorities say the child was abducted on Dec. 4 while walking home from a Christmas concert at a Mount Vernon library.

The attacker took her to an elementary school and raped her at knifepoint. He said he would kill her if she didn't stop screaming.

Prosecutors say the 23-year-old woman was abducted at knifepoint while walking home from work in Mount Vernon on the evening of Oct. 20. She was taken to the same elementary school and forced to perform sex acts.

DiFiore praised the victims' courage in aiding authorities.
