DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - Two teenage boys at a Northern California group home have been arrested on suspicion of holding down and raping an 11-year-old girl in a park.

Police in the Yolo County city of Davis say the boys were arrested on Wednesday.

The assault occurred at a Davis park over the weekend. The 13 and 14-year-old boys and 11-year-old girl were residents of the FamiliesFirst group home.

According to its website, FamiliesFirst serves children and youth with complex behavioral health challenges.

The Sacramento Bee reports that staff from the facility are supposed to supervise the residents at all time, but authorities say no staff members were around when the incident occurred.

FamiliesFirst says it is fully cooperating with the investigation.

Police are also looking into whether other juveniles present during the attack played any role in it.
