Pleasure Ridge Park High School (Source: WAVE 3 Archives)
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A 15-year-old male high school student has been arrested and charged with what police are calling inappropriate sexual contact with several other students.
An LMPD spokesperson said the student is facing five counts of disorderly contact and five counts of harassment.
The female victims range in age from 14 to 17.
Police said the inappropriate contact happened both at Pleasure Ridge Park High School and on a school bus over the course of the school year. A JCPS spokesperson said the incidents were not reported until Wednesday.
School administrators launched an investigation when one alleged victim came forward on Wednesday. At that time, they learned there were at least four other victims.
Since they are juveniles, no names have been released.
