Report: Glades Central players accused of sexual assault
By Lucas O'Neill
The Palm Beach Post
is reporting that
four Glades Central (Belle Glade, Fla.) football players are under investigation
for pressuring a 14-year-old girl to perform sex acts in a school bathroom last month. According to the
, the players were suspended from school and from the team for two games, and district police are investigating the incident.
The story quotes the alleged victim's mother as saying, "I know that they took advantage of her, and I want to see justice done to those boys."
The news comes as
Glades Central prepares for tonight's
highly anticipated matchup with Miami Norland
in the Class 5A regional finals. It was unclear at press time if the four players said to be involved in the incident would be active for the game.
