WILLIAMSBURG, Va., March 20 (UPI) -- A Virginia teenager is charged with sexual battery after allegedly yanking down a 14-year-old girl's pants, a police spokesman said.

The 15-year-old James City boy allegedly came up behind the girl as she was having a public conversation with someone and tugged her pants down, the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press reported Wednesday.

The boy reportedly fled after the Saturday night incident, but authorities arrested him and held him at the Merrimac Juvenile Detention Center after talking to his mother.

Though the incident may be seen as a harmless prank, "any unlawful touching is an assault," James City Police spokesman Mike Spearman said.

Possible punishment for the boy will be decided in juvenile court, the Daily Press reported.
