Philadelphia Student's Identity Released After Sexual Assault

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

It was Tuesday afternoon when police say a 16-year-old male student at Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti High School allegedly committed an indecent sexual assault on a female classmates in a third floor stairwell.

Parents, who spoke to us off camera, said they were angry to hear about the alleged assault on the 15-year-old girl and even more upset when they found out that school's officials "inadvertently" sent out an email to staff and students containing a police report with sensitive information about the attack.

A spokesman for the archdiocese admitted the school sent out the sensitive information, but said a second email was sent out within 30 to 40 minutes asking anyone who received the first email not to read it and to delete it immediately. The school also sent a follow-up message home to parents about the incident and the email communication mix-up.

Detectives at the special victims unit continue to investigate the alleged assault. No charges have been filed against the male student. The archdiocese refused to say if any disciplinary action had been taken against the teen, saying they are cooperating fully with police.
