A student at South Iredell High School reported being raped on the school campus, and a juvenile is facing charges, said Troutman Police Chief Tina Fleming.
Fleming, in a news release, said a student reported a rape to school administration on Dec. 2. Once Troutman police received the report, a criminal investigation was launched.
Fleming said that, following a lengthy investigation, the police department discussed evidence obtained with the Iredell County District Attorney’s Office, and another student was charged with second-degree forcible rape, two counts of second-degree sexual offense and one count of first-degree kidnapping. The charges were filed with the Department of Juvenile Justice.
The name of the student charged was not released.
Fleming said the Iredell-Statesville School district cooperated with Troutman police during the investigation.
