CHICAGO (STMW) – Two Gage Park High School students have been charged with sexually abusing another student inside a school washroom Tuesday afternoon.

The 16-year-old girl told police she was inside a girl’s washroom at the school in the 5600 block of South Rockwell Avenue when two boys entered about 1 p.m. Tuesday and made advances toward her, police said.

The boys, 15 and 16, touched the girl’s breasts, buttocks and tired to slip their hands into her pants, police said.

The girl knew both boys and officers took them into custody, police said.

Each was charged as a juvenile with misdemeanor criminal sexual abuse to a person under 17, police said. The boys were referred to juvenile court.
