FIRST ON 3: Sex assault reported at middle school

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County deputies say a 13-year-old student at Roland-Grise Middle School has been charged in a sexual assault investigation.

Investigators say the male student is facing one charge of false imprisonment and two charges of sexual battery for the incident that happened last week in a bathroom on campus. Deputies say the victim is a 14-year-old student who also attends the school. The student was charged as a juvenile, so any other information about the teen is not public record.

A spokeswoman with the school system said there was an incident involving students at the school and the principal and law enforcement are investigating. She could also not comment on the current status of the student charged.
