Horry County Police’s Criminal Investigation Division is looking into a possible sexual assault on an Horry County school bus involving students from Horry County Alternative School.
According to a county police report, an officer responded to the school on June 5 due to an assault between two students.
The victim, a 13-year-old female, told the officer she had been “sexually assaulted by force” on the bus by a 14-year-old male.
This led officers to interview other students who allegedly had knowledge of the incident, according to the report. The interviews corroborated the victim’s story, “giving strength to the allegations,” it said.
Horry County Schools spokesperson Lisa Bourcier said the district is aware of the incident, which is currently under investigation by both law enforcement and school administration.
