Police are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a first form female student by a third form male student at a secondary school. The reported incident occurred in the female lavatory around midday in the second week of this school term, but came to light only after several weeks of probing into the girl’s seeming erratic behaviour at school and home. The now 12-year-old finally revealed all to the police just before Independence Day and a full investigation has been launched. Yesterday, police public relations officer Inspector David Welch confirmed they were looking into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident. “We confirm that we are investigating a report received,” said Welch. He declined further comment, citing the sensitivity of the matter.
