Midwest City police investigating alleged assault of legislative page
MIDWEST CITY (AP) — Police in Oklahoma are investigating after a teenage girl participating in the Oklahoma House of Representative's page program alleges she was sexually assaulted at a hotel away from the Capitol.
Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes confirmed Thursday his detectives are investigating the alleged assault of the teen Tuesday night by a male teenager who also was serving as a page.
No arrests have been made, and Clabes says when the investigation is completed, it will be turned over to the district attorney to decide if charges are warranted.
House Speaker Charles McCall acknowledged the incident Thursday, but says it would be inappropriate to discuss details while the incident is being investigated.
High school students who participate in the page program stay overnight at an area hotel.
