DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - State officials have revoked the license of a Northern California youth group home following numerous complaints, including recent allegations of rape and sexual assault.

The Sacramento Bee reports that the Department of Social Services on Thursday revoked EMQ FamiliesFirst license to operate its home for youth with mental health issues in Davis. The department alleges lack of supervision and inadequate staffing as well as numerous sexual assaults and assaults.

Two teenage boys were arrested on June 5 on suspicion of raping an 11-year-old girl from the home. The boys were also residents of the home.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested two days later on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl who had run away from the home. The boy was not a resident of the home.

Campbell-based EMQ FamiliesFirst said it would fully respond and defend itself.
