Lawsuit alleges girl was raped by boy in school bathroom

Posted: Updated:

The family of a 12-year-old Kansas City girl is suing Olathe Public Schools alleging their daughter was raped at school.

The lawsuit claims a teacher failed to supervise both students. The suit says the victim and the boy finished an assignment in the common area at Olathe's middle school in 2015 and the common area teacher sent them back to their classroom without supervision. It goes on to say the boy pulled the girl into a boys bathroom and raped her. The girl told a teacher that day and was taken to a hospital.

A school district spokeswoman declined comment Friday, citing pending litigation.
