COLUMBIA — A 17-year-old was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of sexually assaulting a child younger than 14 in his North Columbia home, said Detective Tom O'Sullivan of the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

O'Sullivan would not disclose the age or sex of the victim.

The victim knows the suspect, but they do not live in the same residence, O'Sullivan said. He would not comment on their exact relationship.

There was no indication that a weapon was involved, and the victim was treated and released from Boone Hospital Center, O'Sullivan said.

He said Cody Riley was being held in the Boone County Jail while waiting for bond to be set on two counts of first-degree statutory sodomy.
