Police are investigating the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl earlier this month at an Englewood neighborhood high school on the South Side.

About 2:30 p.m. Nov. 7, the girl was sitting on the stairs, waiting to be picked up after school at Linblom Math and Science Academy, 6130 S. Wolcott Ave., when two boys took her to a stairwell and sexually assaulted her, according to Chicago Police.

The girl was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park for treatment, police said.

“CPS schools work to create safe and supportive environments for all students, and we take seriously any allegation of student harm,” Chicago Public Schools spokesman Michael Passman said. “We are deeply concerned by these allegations, and we are fully cooperating with the Chicago Police Department as it investigates this serious matter.”

No one was in custody Thursday night as Area South detectives investigate the incident.
