Do not call the cops first - its extremely rare to find cops capable of handling such a situation competently and without making it much worse. Take her to see your GP, or better still, a pediatrician your GP could recommend, for a gentle examination and a discussion of what happened. If he's a little boy, there may well be nothing to find on examination.
THen it would be helpful, if possible for her to see a gentle child psychologist or child psychiatrist, for a further assessment. They should also be able to advise you on legalities. Reporting it to the police either results in a clumsy mess of no benefit to anyone, or, if it leads to a case, such cases can be more traumatising to the child than what actually happened. Take care, while taking this seriously, not to make it seem calamitous so as not to frighten the girls more. Praise her for her good sense in telling you about this.
Discuss with the child shrink how best to handle it - it might be best to discuss this with the relevant child's parents, as he may need assessment, too.
Children are curious about sex among many other things, and they do experiment and explore together, so this may not represent evil intentions, but for a young lad to act that definitively sexually raises the possibility that he may have been exposed to molestation himself, so all aspects need to be explored and understood.
