Hearing delayed for Idaho teen charged in assault


LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) _ A court date has been postponed for a
northern Idaho teen accused of sexually assaulting a 43-year-old
woman at knifepoint.
Court records show 16-year-old Joshua C. Grossman, of Lewiston, is being charged as an adult with felony rape in Idaho's 2nd
District Court.
Police say the teen used two knives to threaten and attack a
female acquaintance at her home. The woman was treated at a
Lewiston hospital less than an hour after she reported the assault
took place in her bedroom at her Lewiston home.
Grossman was interviewed a short time later by detectives and
taken into custody.
The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/pNmH7z ) Magistrate
Judge Gregory Kalbfleisch has continued a preliminary hearing in
the case until Oct. 5 to allow time for Grossman to undergo a
psychological evaluation.
