Boy, 15, accused of groping girls, women near high school
A 15-year-old former Glendale High School student has been arrested in connection with groping three students and two women near the campus, police said this week.
The boy, whose name wasn’t released because he’s a minor, was expelled from the high school following the sexual battery reports, but he is being home-schooled, Steven Frasher, spokesman for Glendale Unified School District told the Glendale News-Press.
The boy touched three girls at the high school and two women in separate incidents that occurred in neighborhoods near the campus, Glendale Police Sgt. Harout Bouzikian said.
The incidents are a concern, Bouzikian said, because they “can manifest to something more serious in the future.”
Detectives arrested the boy on Oct. 7, the same day the girls reported the alleged sexual batteries to school authorities. He was expelled Oct. 10, said Frasher, who declined to elaborate on the district’s response.
