St. Petersburg Teens Charged With Raping Girl at High School

Two teenagers are accused of raping a 15-year-old girl on the campus of Dixie Hollins High School in St. Petersburg.

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say the girl reported the crime on Monday. She told them she'd been attacked in a room at the school by two students she didn't know.

Authorities identified the suspects as a 17 and 15 years old. The teens were charged Wednesday with sexual battery and were taken to the Pinellas County Juvenile Assessment Center.

Sheriff's officials didn't say whether the attack occurred during school hours.

No further details were immediately available.
