Lethbridge Police are investigating the sexual assault of a 16-year-old student at Chinook High School.
The incident, involving players in the football program, occurred in a school locker room on Tuesday, after regular school hours. The subjects and victim are known to one another. This was not a random incident.
Chinook High School and the Lethbridge School Division are cooperating fully with the investigation. Police officers remain on scene and warrants are being executed within the school.
There is no evidence to suggest any ongoing risk to other students in relation to this matter and the school remains open.
At this time, the investigation is still in its early stages and no arrests have been made or charges laid.
While we understand this is an extremely concerning situation, protecting the integrity of the ongoing investigation is our priority.
No further details or information will be released. An update will be provided when available.
