HOMOSASSA -- Two boys were arrested on charges of sexual battery on an 11-year-old boy Friday.

George Michael Orsic Jr., 14, of 6429 W Folger Court and Aaron John Myers, 15, of 5734 W Oaklawn St., both in Homosassa, were each charged with one count of sexual battery on a child.

The victim told sheriff's detectives that the two boys lured him into the woods, where, he said, Myers held him down while Orsic attempted to sodomize him. The assault stopped when a neighbor intervened.

Orsic and Myers were taken to a youth detention facility operated by the Department of Juvenile Justice.
