As The Associated Press has reported in a recent article, even very young children can be victims of sexual assault.  According to statistics “about 5 percent of all sexual attacks reported on school property in a recent two-year period happened to 5 and 6 year olds, according to the AP analysis.

Little boys made up about 41 percent of the youngest victims — significantly higher than at other times in their school years. Among teens, boys comprised only about 10 percent of reported victims.”
