Raleigh, N.C. — The Wake County Public School System said Monday that it's investigating a case of inappropriate sexual contact on a school bus last month.
An 8-year-old child allegedly touched a kindergarten student inappropriately on Nov. 28, said Wake schools spokesman Greg Thomas. Both children are students at Partnership Elementary School in Raleigh.
The same 8-year-old may have been involved in a similar case of inappropriate contact that day with a different student, but school leaders were not notified until Dec. 5.
Disciplinary action was taken against the 8-year-old, Thomas said, but he declined to comment further.
Thomas said the school system is still investigating both incidents.
No other details were released.
