Palm Bay police investigate report of sex assault in middle school bathroom

PALM BAY, Fla. — Palm Bay police and Brevard Public School are investigating after a report of a sexual assault at an unidentified middle school.

A 14-year-old is accused of entering a bathroom where he performed a sex act on another student, despite the victim’s lack of consent and plea for him to stop.

A police report said the suspect admitted to performing a sex act, saying an unknown male from Orlando told him through the Kik messenger app to do it, or he would harm him.

Investigators said there’s no evidence to support the claim.

The teenage suspect is facing a sexual battery charge and has been suspended from school.

Parents who have children that attend the same school were not notified of the incident.
