Detectives Investigate Sexual Assault Incident between Two Students NR10100rf

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Harbor Division detectives are investigating a reported sexual assault that occurred at Nathaniel Narbonne High School in Harbor City.

The alleged assault happened yesterday at the school shortly after 10 a.m. while classes were in session. The students involved were a 15-year-old female and 17-year-old male who were already acquainted.  So far, the investigation has shown the encounter to be an isolated incident between two individuals and not part of a trend or serial-related.   

The male subject was arrested at the school without incident and is currently being detained on sexual assault charges.  In the near future, the case will be presented to the Long Beach Juvenile District Attorney's Office.  The identities of both subjects are confidential due to their ages.
