A DeKalb County Grand Jury has indicted two men for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy. The 24-count indictment against 39-year-old Kelvin Jermain Armstrong and 47-year-old Kevin Walker includes charges of Aggravated Sexual Battery, Aggravated Child Molestation, Child Molestation, Cruelty to Children in the First Degree, Enticing a Child for Indecent Purposes, False Imprisonment, Reckless Conduct of an HIV Infected Person, and drug possession.
The charges against the defendants stem from an incident on Jan. 29, 2018. According to the investigation, the victim was grabbed and forced into a Buford Highway apartment while walking home after missing his school bus. Once inside the apartment, the child was threatened and then sexually assaulted by two men who later left him there before fleeing the scene in a vehicle. The child quickly escaped and ran to the leasing office for help. Defendants Armstrong and Walker were later identified, questioned by police, and arrested. Both remain jailed without bond.
The case will be prosecuted by the District Attorney’s Sexual Exploitation and Crimes Against Children (SECAC) Unit. A trial date has not been scheduled.
