RAYTOWN, Mo. -- Police in Raytown are investigating after a middle school student reported that she was sexually assaulted while at school Tuesday.

The Raytown Police Department said they were notified of the alleged incident at 6:20 p.m. Wednesday. According to the report, the sexual assault occurred at Raytown Central Middle School.

Police say an eighth-grade male sexually assaulted a 13-year-old female student in a bathroom. Sexual assault covers a wide array of possible incidents.

A public information officer with the Raytown School District says he cannot release any additional information because the case involves minors.

"I expect them (the district) to send some letters out explaining what's going on because as a parent that is my expectation," Raytown parent Crystal Willis told FOX 4.

FOX 4 has reached out to the school district for a statement, but we have not yet heard back.
