Goddard student arrested for fondling another student

GODDARD, Kan. (KWCH) Goddard police arrested a 15-year-old student for fondling another student on Wednesday.

A 16-year-old female student from Goddard High School and her parent made a report Wednesday evening. The girl said she had been sexually assaulted at the high school earlier in the day.

A Goddard police supervisor, knowing the school has its own department, contacted school police to investigate.

On Thursday, high school police had probable cause to arrest a 15-year-old male student.

Police say the two students have known each other for a long period of time.

They say the two students had a happenstance encounter in a school hallway. What started out as an innocent embrace, turned into inappropriate fondling of the female student.

The 15-year-old male student has not been officially charged. He was arrested and taken to the juvenile detention facility.

Goddard school police will present their case to the juvenile district attorney on Monday.
