Four middle school students in Wisconsin have been arrested and are facing sexual assault charges after a report that they recorded their “sex party” on their phones.
According to ABC affiliate WISN, police have recommended the students – whose exact ages are unknown, but who could be as young as 13 – be charged with first-degree and second-degree assault of a minor.
The “sex party” was allegedly held at the home of a classmate in Brown Deer, Wisconsin, during the Christmas holiday break. School staff called police to Brown Deer Middle School earlier in January after a student reported a “sex party” at the home of a friend during the holiday vacation.
Police eventually arrested four students in their early teens. Brown Deer Police Chief Michael Kass said the videos of the alleged sexual assaults were not posted on social media.
“We’re trying to send a clear message that this type of behavior isn’t going to be condoned by law enforcement, nor school officials, nor shouldn’t be by parents, really, when we’re talking kids that are middle-school age,” Kass said regarding his recommendations.
He added that police completed their investigation and do not believe adults were involved. Kass said he has not been told yet whether the middle school students will, in fact, be charged.
