A 13-year-old charged as an adult in connection with the stabbing of his mother and stepfather has now been charged with statutory rape.
The alleged victim is a 10-year-old girl who is acquainted with Noah Kaid Burge but is not a blood relative, said police Sgt. Adam Cooper.
The rape reportedly occurred Monday, the day before the stabbing. The incidents aren’t directly related and police learned of the alleged rape while investigating the assaults on Burge’s parents, Cooper said.
The parents had suspicions that something was amiss but they didn’t know Burge had been accused of rape, Cooper added.
Burge’s mother and stepfather were hospitalized late Tuesday night after police were called to their home on Banebury Cove.
Cooper said officers found the parents suffering from multiple stab wounds and they identified Burge as their assailant.
Officers found Burge a couple of hours later at Mays Road and Easy Street, which is near his home.
Cooper did not release details on a possible motive for the stabbing but said he believed Burge’s parents remained hospitalized.
