— A Raleigh teen has been accused of committing sexual acts with two boys, both under age 10.

Karlton Cheston, 17, of 1309 Highcourt Drive, Apt. 102, was charged with three counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and one count of first-degree statutory sexual offense.

The victims of the sex offenses, which happened in August, were 7-year-old and 9-year-old boys who knew Cheston, according to the arrest warrant.

Investigators said that Cheston performed oral sex on the 9-year-old victim.

The warrant describes Cheston as a student but does not say what school he attends.

Cheston was arrested Friday, and he was being held in the Wake County Jail under a $500,000 bond Saturday.
