According to the Loudoun Times, the Loudoun County Public School are investigating sexual assault allegations involving members from the Tuscarora High School football team. The team is still expected to play its football game with Freedom High School on Friday night.
The football team had practice on Tuesday after it was canceled on Saturday and Monday. Loudoun County Public Schools district spokesman Wayde Byard released a statement.
“Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is cooperating with the Leesburg Police Department to investigate an alleged incident involving members of the Tuscarora High School football team,” the statement said. “LCPS became aware of the alleged incident on Friday, October 5. To preserve the integrity of the investigation by Leesburg police — and due to federal laws protecting student privacy — LCPS is limited as to what it can share with the public.
“The Leesburg Police Department continues to monitor this situation. The Leesburg Police Department is committed to providing more resources to Tuscarora should they be needed. Federal law prohibits LCPS from revealing disciplinary consequences involving students. School Board policy sets discipline consequences, including expulsion, for very serious infractions. The Leesburg Police Department contributed to the writing of this message.”
The report alleges that a Tuscarora football player was sexually assaulted in the Leesburg locker room following practice earlier this month, according to the report. One source believes the alleged incident happened after practice on Oct. 1 when the victim was allegedly held down by teammates and had objects inserted into the victim.
According to Fox 5, there is outraged on social media regarding how the school is handling the situation. Fox 5 is reporting that parents were recently notified of the incident even though it happened earlier this month.
