Two High School Students Allegedly Raped A Girl In School Bathroom

During school hours.

Two Maryland high school students have been charged with raping a girl in a bathroom last Thursday during school hours, according to CBS News.

Police say the girl was walking in a hallway of Rockville High at around 9 a.m. when she ran into the two male teens. According to CBS News, police say 17-year-old Jose Montano propositioned the girl for sex, but she refused. He asked her once more before forcing her into a boy’s bathroom and into a stall. It was there that he and 18-year-old Henry Sanchez allegedly raped her.

Police have charged Montano and Sanchez with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. Both are being held without bail, according to CBS News. Montano is charged as an adult.

In a statement released to CBS affiliate WUSA9, a Montgomery County Public Schools spokesperson said school officials contacted police after the incident was reported to the administration. The two alleged rapists were then arrested on school property.

The police conducted an investigation and subsequently executed arrests on school property of the alleged assailants.
