NORTH MYRTLE BEACH (WMBF) – A 16-year-old North Myrtle Beach boy has been arrested for alleged criminal sexual conduct with a young girl, according to police reports.

During a pediatric exam earlier this month, the girl became upset and told the doctor about the alleged conduct, according to the report from North Myrtle Beach Police. The doctor called police, who responded and interviewed the doctor and the victim. Samples collected by the doctor were placed into evidence, the report states.

In the report, the victim told police that the incident allegedly occurred on December 31, 2012.

The teenager, identified by police as Shawn Henderson, was arrested and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor (under 11) and was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Tuesday, according to jail records. He was released the same day on a $30,000 bond.
