Los Angeles police said Tuesday that detectives were investigating an alleged sexual assault at Narbonne High School in Harbor City.

The incident involved a 17-year-old male student and a 15-year-old female student, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The alleged assault happened Tuesday shortly after 10 a.m. while classes were in session.

"So far, the investigation has shown the encounter to be an isolated incident between two individuals and not part of a trend or serial related," the LAPD said in a news release.

The male was taken into custody on suspicion of sexual assault, police said. The investigation was ongoing.
