FAIRFIELD, CA (AP) - A Vacaville teenager has been convicted of raping and stabbing a 13-year-old girl and attacking her toddler brother.

A Solano County jury found 16-year-old Alexander Cervantes guilty on Friday on all counts in the December 2010 attack.

He was charged with two counts of attempted murder; two counts of mayhem; two counts of aggravated mayhem; one count of burglary; two counts of assault with a deadly weapon; one count of rape with a child under 14; one count of sodomy with a child under 14 and two counts of forcible oral copulation with a child under 14.

According to The Reporter of Vacaville Cervantes is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 30.

Authorities say Cervantes broke into the girl's home, raped her and stabbed her dozens of times and stabbed her 18-month-old brother before falling asleep.

He allegedly told the girl he was taking revenge because her brother had snitched on someone.

Cervantes was charged as an adult.

His attorney, Erin Kirkpatrick, had told jurors Cervantes was drunk and rambling.
