CENTERVILLE — A 16-year-old Washington Twp. boy has been charged with sexual imposition as a result of an ongoing investigation by Centerville police after an alleged incident at Centerville High School.
John Davis, community relations officer with the Centerville Police Department, confirmed the investigation began on May 5 after an incident on the grounds of the high school.
“The suspect and victim are both juveniles, therefore, the details that I can provide are very limited,” Davis said.
The suspect is a Centerville student, and the matter is now juvenile court.
School officials say that allegations involving sex crimes are taken seriously, and the police were notified immediately.
“We cannot go into much detail since the student involved is a juvenile,” said Sarah Swan, community relations specialist for the school district. “There were school consequences for the student, and the police were notified.”
