The organization says the alleged attack happened Saturday at the South Boston club. A spokeswoman says the suspect was from a “partner organization.” He and the alleged victim are the same age.

“Child safety and protection is our number one priority, and we apply intense due diligence to all aspects of policy and operations to reduce risk and provide a safe, secure environment,” the Boys and Girls Club of Boston said in a statement.

They said they are working with police in the investigation, and could not give any more information about the boys due to their ages.
