    Numerous charges have been filed against a 13-year-old boy who has allegedly groped and harassed several women at a southern New Jersey apartment complex in recent months.
     
    Gloucester Township police captured the boy around 2:30 p.m. Sunday after a short pursuit at the Autumn Ridge Apartments. Officers went there after a complex resident reported seeing a person who matched the attacker's description.
     
    Authorities said the boy attends a school in Camden. He's charged in five separate incidents that have occurred since last December.

    Authorities say the boy faces five counts each of attempted sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, lewdness and harassment.

    He's being held at a youth detention center.
