Sheriff Says Evidence Indicates Sex Assault on Swim Team Bus

KSAL StaffMarch 30, 2016

The Barton County sheriff says its initial investigation found evidence of a sexual assault during a bus ride last month involving members of the swim team at Great Bend High School.

Sheriff Brian Bellendir said in a phone interview Wednesday that their investigation supports evidence of criminal sodomy, battery and criminal restraint during the Feb. 3 bus ride in Barton County.

The 15-year-old victim and 17-year-old suspect are both members of the Great Bend swim team who were on their way back from a meet.

The Barton County attorney will decide if any charges will be filed.

A similar Feb. 6 incident involving the Great Bend swim team is under investigation in Ellsworth County, but Bellendir says he does not know if the same people were involved in that case.
