Two teenagers are under arrest in Wichita, accused of sexually assaulting a 76-year-old widow and stealing items from her home.
Police expect charges to be filed today against the male suspects, who are 17 and 18 years old.
The teens were arrested around 6 a.m. Friday, shortly after the attack.
Investigators said the woman was asleep when two males — at least one of them armed — kicked in a door at her home. After one of the pair raped the woman, they left with jewelry and TV sets.
The teens were found at the home of a 22-year-old woman, who was arrested on suspicion of helping a felon.
Police Lieutenant Randy Reynolds said the 76-year-old woman was living alone since her husband’s recent death.
