Cape teen accused of sexual battery
A 14-year-old Cape Coral boy was arrested and charged Tuesday with felony sexual battery of a victim under 12 years old.
Peter Weinberger was booked into the Juvenile Detention Center by Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies based on a warrant for his arrest by the Cape Coral Police Department, records show.
Family members declined comment Wednesday.
The charge stems from a Department of Children and Families investigation in New Jersey, claiming Weinberger may have sexually assaulted a victim under 12 years old.
DCF investigators provided the information to the Cape Coral Police Department between July and September, arrest documents state.
Cape detective Paul Kaye wrote in an arrest warrant that he had determined there was probable cause for Weinberger’s arrest.
