A 15-year-old boy has been charged in the sexual assault of another student on the campus of the African-Centered College Preparatory Academy in Kansas City.

Jackson County officials said Thursday that the suspect has been charged with second-degree rape and sodomy in juvenile court. According to authorities, a female student at the school reported that she had been raped by another student during the lunch hour on Sept. 28.

Authorities say the student told Kansas City police the suspect took her into another area of the building and assaulted her in a stairwell. The student told a school tutor at the end of the day about the incident, and the suspect was arrested.
