Boy, 16, Admits Knife Attacks CINCINNATI (AP)— Detectives went to work today to learn the extent of admission by a Negro youth, age 16, in a series of attacks on white women in the Cincinnati area. The juvenile was arrested at Good Samaritan Hospital Monday night after a young hospital volunteer worker was raped at knifepoint in a storeroom. Police said the youth admitted the rape and other attacks, including the knifing of Virginia Westerbeck, 18, in a rest room in Central High School last Summer. The Westerbeck girl's injury caused an outcry urging tighter security for pupils in city schools. Police arrested the tall, thin juvenile at the hospital and said a knife was in his possession. A high school junior, he had been working as a dishwasher at the hospital at night for about five months. Miss Westerbeck, who recovered from a stab wound in the abdomen, said her assailant was a tall, lean Negro.
