A 15-year-old boy has been charged in Ohio in the rape of a woman along a street in broad daylight as cars drove past.

Toledo police say that at least four drivers saw the attack Tuesday afternoon and called authorities.

Police say one driver slowed down and beeped the car horn; another turned around to return to the scene and saw a person running away.

Sgt. Sam Harris says he doesn't blame drivers for not stopping because they might not have known they were seeing a rape.

Police say the woman had a learning disability but did not elaborate on its seriousness.

Authorities arrested the teen at his home early Wednesday. He was charged with delinquency in connection with rape and robbery and could face trial as an adult.
