Kansas City police are investigating a reported rape of a 13-year-old student at a middle school on the city’s East Side.
The alleged attack was reported Friday but occurred about noon on Feb. 27 at Raytown Middle School, 4900 Pittman Road.
The victim told police that she was walking to class when the 15-year-old boy started talking to her, according to police reports. The girl said the boy then began pulling her toward a room and told her to come with him.
The girl said she tried to walk away but the boy grabbed her by the hair and a book bag and pulled her into the room.
She said she tried to stop him, but the boy forced her onto some mats on the floor and sexually assaulted her.
Raytown School Superintendent Allan Markley said in a statement: “We are aware of the police report. We are cooperating with police as they investigate. When the police have made their findings and if the allegations are true, we will handle discipline in accordance with board policy and state law.”
Cathy Allie, district spokeswoman, said district officials could not comment about the status of the students mentioned in the police report. Allie said the student accused in the incident is not attending Raytown Middle while the investigation is under way.
