Former Arizona students indicted in sexual assault case
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Two former Arizona high school students have been indicted in a sexual assault case.
According to an indictment from the Navajo County Superior Court, the suspects sexually assaulted a Glendale high school student during a wrestling trip in December. The suspects and victim’s former teammates recorded the assault. A report on Friday says they are both minors who are being charged as adults.
Reports say the victim was bullied in school after the video was shared over social media.
A school district spokeswoman says the suspected teens were disciplined by school officials and no longer attend Mountain Ridge High School. The school is offering the victim support.
The suspects are scheduled to appear in court June 5.
