KBI Takes over Swim Team Investigation

KSAL StaffMarch 3, 2016

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is now handling the investigation of an alleged sexual assault aboard a bus carrying the Great Bend High School boys swim team in February.

Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir said the case went to the KBI because of questions about jurisdiction. The bus drove across Saline, Ellsworth and Barton counties when the alleged assault occurred on Feb. 3 when a swim team member reportedly assaulted a 15-year-old boy.

The Hutchinson News reports a second claim of assault occurred after a team bus ride on Feb. 6 from Manhattan to Great Bend. Ellsworth County is investigating that claim.

Authorities have not discussed the alleged incidents in detail. Family members and students protested in Great Bend in February, criticizing the district’s response to the reports.
