PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have charged a teenager in connection with a reported sexual assault at a high school in suburban Kansas City.

The Johnson County district attorney’s office said Wednesday that the 15-year-old male is charged with aggravated indecent liberties with a child, which is a felony, and lewd and lascivious behavior, a misdemeanor.

A female freshman at Shawnee Mission East High School in Prairie Village reported being groped and fondled in a boys’ bathroom at the school on Sept. 14.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/2dugSio ) that prosecutors did not release the name of the teen charged, and no court date has been set for him.

School officials say internal disciplinary action was also taken as a result of the incident, but they could not comment because of privacy laws.
