Mayfair Elementary student assaulted by classmate

By Shannon McDonald

Details are few, but it’s been reported that a 14-year-old female student at Mayfair Elementary School was sexually assaulted in a stairwell by a 13-year-old male student. Though the suspect has already been charged, his name has not been release due to his age.

The assault occurred around 1:15 yesterday afternoon as the two eighth graders were on their way back to class from the nurse’s office. Friends of the girl notified a teacher, who then called the police.

The boy has been charged with aggravated indecent assault and related offenses.
