A Loudoun County, Virginia high school student accused of assaulting an individual in a school bathroom while wearing a skirt was reportedly under electronic monitoring by police for a previous assault charge.
The unnamed 15-year-old teen was accused last week of assault for allegedly forcing a victim into an empty classroom at Broad Run High School. There, he “held her against her will and inappropriately touched her,” police said.
At the time, the student was already under electronic monitoring by police due to being charged with sexually assaulting a young girl in a bathroom in an Ashburn high school in May. The accused attacker wore a skirt during the alleged assault, the victim’s father Scott Smith told The Daily Wire, a conservative publication.
The Loudoun County School Board said in a Wednesday statement that it has deferred the investigation to police and chose not to publicly comment on it before now. The board remained silent, it said, in order not to interfere with the police investigation.
