A 10-year-old Canfield girl has been arrested in an alleged rape involving minors.

There are three alleged female victims: one is 10, and two are 11.

Records show Canfield police arrested the 10-year-old girl. Charges of gross sexual imposition and multiple counts of rape are pending. The girl was taken to the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center.
