In brief: Nonconsensual Acts

Sexual assault refers to any sexual behavior without a person's consent.
By definition this includes all sexual behavioor perpetrated by adults toward minors, because children are not considered to be of age to give consent. In addition, forced sexual activity by an older child toward a younger child may be considered to be assault.
