ALTON — An Alton High School student is being held at Madison County Jail after allegedly sexually assaulting another student on school grounds last week.
The 20-year-old student is being held on $100,000 bond after an alleged incident that occurred after school on March 15, according to Madison County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mike T. Dixon. The students were in a prior relationship.
“Once notified of the alleged incident, Alton High administrators immediately contacted the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and provided their full cooperation in the investigation,” Alton Assistant Superintendent Kristie Baumgartner said.
Dixon said the names of the students aren’t being released to protect the victim. Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, Baumgartner said the district has no further comment on the matter at this time.
