No Investigation Into Alleged Sexual Assault At Edgerton

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Even though a case of alleged sexual assault at Edgerton Elementary in Kalispell is out of her hands now, detective Melissa Smith urges parents to report inappropriate touching between kids.

The father of one of the three 6-year-old boys at Edgerton came to the police on December 7 to report "inappropriate touching" he said happened in a school bathroom.

No criminal investigation took place and no charges were pressed largely because of how young the boys are.

Child Protective Services is now involved, and Smith says she is working with the school to refer the families to counselors.

"This is not the first case that I've had in a school where there's been some inappropriate behavior between children, but it is not common," said Smith.

It is not known if the kids were taken out of school after the touching was reported.
