    An 18-year-old is in custody after police say he attempted to rape an underage girl in a high school bathroom stall.

    Toby Duncan is being held without bond on charges of sexual battery, lewd battery on a victim under 16, lewd molestation on a victim over 12 and false imprisonment, jail records show.

    Police say Duncan grabbed the victim as she was walking down a hallway at Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach and forced her towards the boy's bathroom. When she resisted he picked her up and carried her into the bathroom against her will, according to authorities.

    Inside, he pushed her into a bathroom stall and attempted to pull her pants down while touching her inappropriately, police said. The victim was afraid because Duncan had allegedly been violent with other students in the school, police said.

    As Duncan attempted to force the girl to have sex with him, a security guard went into the bathroom and Duncan fled, police said. He was eventually caught and arrested.
