Police investigating sexual allegations at local middle school
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police are looking into disturbing allegations involving middle school students in Kalamazoo.
The investigation is ongoing, and not many people are willing to talk about the situation. Police would only say they were investigating, the same was true of school officials, but Newschannel 3 has learned there are accusations of at least one student sexually assaulting other students in a bathroom.
Newschannel 3 has learned that police are investigating a situation involving inappropriate touching at Linden Grove Middle School in Kalamazoo.
A grandmother of one of the alleged victims is claiming an eighth grade boy attacked sixth graders in a bathroom; and according to her, pulled down their pants and grabbed their genitals.
Alex Lee of Kalamazoo Public Schools would only tell us the following on Friday.
“We can confirm there was an incident. Police are investigating, and because of this investigation we have no further comment.”
The grandmother also told Newschannel 3 that parents are upset because they found out about the incident from police, not school administrators.
A district spokesperson says he didn’t know if the school contacted parents about the investigation before detectives did, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
Newschannel 3 has been told this allegedly happened within the last two weeks. We also know detectives are continuing to talk with parents.
