Detectives are investigating allegations that a 15-year-old girl was raped at a Birmingham school.
Police said two boys, aged 14 and 15, had been arrested and bailed pending further investigation into incidents alleged to have taken place at a school in Birmingham between January and April this year.
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: “We can confirm that we are investigating allegations of rape of a 15-year-old girl. Two boys aged 14 and 15 have been arrested and are currently on police bail pending further inquiries.”
The alleged victim and the two boys all go to the same school in central Birmingham. Neither the children involved or the school can be named for legal reasons.
It is understood that specially trained officers on the newly formed Public Protection Unit have been working with the alleged victim to coax information from her.
The new Public Protection Units were set up on each of the city’s nine operational command units in March to deal with all allegations of sexual or physical abuse of children, sex offenders, domestic abuse and abuse of vulnerable adults.
A spokesman for the Birmingham City Council said: “This matter is subject to current police proceedings and the school is fully supporting the police investigation. The safety of all our young people is of paramount importance, and Birmingham City Council will provide support to staff and pupils at the school when the summer term commences.”
