DETROIT (AP) – A 14-year-old Detroit boy has pleaded guilty to rape and kidnapping charges for an attack on a 26-year-old female pedestrian.

Police say the boy walked behind the woman on a northwest Detroit street on March 3, put a knife to her throat and forced her into the abandoned house, then raped her. He was prosecuted as an adult.

Wayne County prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller says boy pleaded guilty Wednesday to first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.

Judge Leslie Kim Smith is to sentence him May 25. The charges can bring up to life in prison.

    Parents, where were you when this child was growing up? Where are you now? What’s really important to you? I don’t get it. If he had some psychological issues, why didn’t you see it? If he’s running with a gang, did you know his friends? This boy and that woman’s life is changed forever. Were you aware of where he hung out? Who was he listening to? This is beyond sad.
