Doorbell video captures sexual assault of two children

Yakima police responded to a call at the Spruce Street Apartments at 4:40 pm Tuesday afternoon when a resident called to say that his doorbell video had captured images of a woman performing sexual acts on two boys said to be between 5 and 9 years old.


The woman, a resident of the apartments and known to the two boys, tried to run from police when they approached her.  She was knocked to the ground and reportedly tried to resist by moving her arms around.


19-year-old Miah R. Lopez was taken into custody and charged with two counts of Child Rape 1st Degree, and Obstruction of Law Enforcement Officer.  She was booked into the Yakima County Jail but has since been released.


Her court date is unknown.
