NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -

Friday, May 24, North Charleston Police responded to the Stardust Skating Rink for an alleged sexual assault.

According to the police report, the victim's mother says her 11-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted. The victim's mother told police that her daughter texted the 17-year-old male suspect to meet her in a room at the skating rink.

The victim told police she was meeting the suspect in the room to return a friendship bracelet that he had given her.  The victim said the suspect began touching her inappropriately as she was searching in her bag for the bracelet.  

The police report says the victim told the suspect to stop repeatedly, at which point she was able to get away.

The victim's mother later told police that she believed the two had been kissing and it escalated from there.  Authorities informed the mother that whether the incident was consensual or not, the physical contact of this nature is a crime due the age difference.

Police arrested 17-year-old Brandon Hill and charged him with criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Hill went through bond court at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning and received $25,000 bond.
