WASHINGTON — Three teenagers who attend Tuscarora High School in Leesburg, Virginia, have been charged in connection with an incident that happened in the school’s locker room.

Two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old allegedly assaulted an underclassman on the football team on Oct. 1, a news release said. The assault happened after regular school hours.

One student is charged with sexual battery and the two other students are charged with assault and battery.

The names of the accused are not released because they are juveniles.
