NEWPORT NEWS-An 18-year-old woman is charged with molesting a nine-year-old boy at her home in Newport News.

Police say it happened in February, but the boy didn't tell his mother until recently.

The boy said Nukia Shaneece Barnes invited him into her residence and then sexually assaulted him, said police spokeswoman Holly McPherson.

Barnes was arrested at her Malibu Place home home on Saturday night on charges of aggravated sexual battery, forcible sodomy and crimes against nature.
