Three teenage boys were arrested for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl who skipped class, Baltimore police announced Saturday.
The three teens came across the girl as she cut class at Leith Walk Elementary and Middle School Friday, reports the Baltimore Sun.
The group forced her into a janitor’s closet after they passed her in the hallway. Once inside the closet, two of the boys allegedly assaulted the girl, police said.
Police were able to identify the boys after the girl was interviewed at Baltimore Child Abuse Center. Two of the boys were charged with sexual assault, and the other faces charges of second degree sexual assault and conspiracy.
Parents learned of the event Friday, a spokeswoman with the Baltimore City Public Schools told Fox Baltimore. She described the alleged assault as “deeply disturbing.”
“Our primary concern is the well-being of our students, and we will provide support and counseling at the school beginning on Monday,” Anne Fullerton, the spokesperson, said to Fox Baltimore.
She added that the school will work with the police as they investigate more and that meetings will be held early this week to address any concerns parents might have.
