Coach fired, two students suspended following 'extremely disturbing' incident with wrestling team

NORMAN, Okla. – Several students have been suspended, and a coach has been terminated, after reports of an "extremely disturbing" incident with Oklahoma's Norman North Junior Varsity wrestling team.

The alleged incident happened on the bus as the JV wrestling team was returning from a tournament.

Sources close to the investigation say that the incident involved a 12-year-old boy who was allegedly sexually assaulted by several upperclassmen while on the school bus.

The boy was allegedly held down, and his mouth was covered so he couldn't scream, as he was sexually assaulted by two teens believed to be students at Norman North High School.

Norman police began an internal investigation. The attack was captured by surveillance cameras on the bus, according to KFOR.

Two students were suspended within a matter of hours, and officials expect more student suspension as the investigation continues.
