Evanston Township High School is offering a bit more information on this week's sexual assault arrest by releasing a statement on its website.
"Although the district cannot provide specific information regarding the students involved or any ongoing police investigation, we can confirm that the incident in the stairwell was not a random act," the statement reads. "Prior to the incident, the two students involved were in the hallway together before they went to the stairwell."
"The school district will continue to cooperate fully with the Evanston Police during its investigation and will take any appropriate disciplinary action as warranted by district policies."
