TUCSON, Ariz. -- Four wrestlers at a Tucson-area high school have been indicted on charges of attacking another teenage student in a campus locker room last month.
An indictment unsealed Thursday in Pima County Superior Court charged the four 18-year-olds each with aggravated assault on an incapacitated victim, aggravated assault of a minor and indecent exposure to a minor.
Authorities said one of the teens also is facing one count of aggravated assault on an incapacitated victim.
According to court documents, a 15-year-old boy was surrounded by up to 10 Sahuarita High wrestlers on Jan. 15 before being forced to the ground and held down by four of the suspects.
The Arizona Daily Star reported documents said the victim's pants and underwear were forcibly removed before two wrestlers performed lewd acts on the restrained student.
