WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two teenagers are under arrest in Wichita, accused of sexually assaulting a 76-year-old widow and stealing items from her home.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/11rmxTu ) police expect charges to be filed Tuesday against the male suspects, who are 17 and 18 years old.

The teens were arrested around 6 a.m. Friday, shortly after the attack.

Investigators said the woman was asleep when two males — at least one of them armed — kicked in a door at her home. After one of the pair raped the woman, they left with jewelry and TV sets.

The teens were found at the home of a 22-year-old woman, who was arrested on suspicion of helping a felon.

Police Lt. Randy Reynolds said the 76-year-old woman was living alone since her husband’s recent death.
