HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Two 14-year-old boys have pleaded not guilty to rape charges in the alleged sexual assault of a girl in the field house at Lakeside High School.

The Sentinel-Record reports (https://bit.ly/1To06ze ) the two entered the pleas Tuesday in juvenile court and that both remain in custody at the Garland County Juvenile Detention Center.

The boys were arrested Friday after the girl told police that she was in the field house on Feb. 24 when the boys forced her into a girls’ locker room, turned off the lights, held her down and sexually assaulted her.

Lakeside Superintendent Shawn Cook said Tuesday that stronger security measures are planned for the campus, including two full-time police officers and more security cameras.
