The family of a 4-year-old boy told Columbus Police Monday afternoon that he was molested earlier this month in a local residence off of 17th Avenue, according to an incident report.

The report indicates that the boy is familiar with his attacker, but no one has been charged with the sexual assault, which occurred in a living room between 12:01 a.m. Feb. 1 and 11:59 p.m. Friday.

The case remains under investigation.
