16 charged in sex assaults at city school

`In what is a shocking and disturbing case, more than a dozen students have been arrested for allegedly torturing and sexually assaulting a girl repeatedly for more than a year at a North York Roman Catholic high school.

Police told earlier this afternoon that 16 young offenders have been arrested in the case, which has just come to light. [..]

Last Thursday, a 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged with sexual assault, forcible confinement and criminal harassment.

Today, police descended on the school while students were in class and school staff rounded up the 14 suspects. The teens, two of them girls, were then handcuffed and taken to the local police detachment.

Twelve male students were charged with criminal harassment and the two female students have been charged with threatening bodily harm.’
