Girl, 16, ‘raped in high school hallway for 30 minutes while everyone ignored her screams’ – The Sun

A HIGH school student claims she was raped by a classmate in a secluded hallway for 30 minutes and screamed for help, but her cries were ignored.

The 16-year-old from Texas was allegedly approached by a boy she didn't know just as she was leaving Mayde Creek High School to grab lunch, KPRC reports.

One minute they were talking, and the next she was shoved to the ground and attacked, she claims.

"He shoved me to the ground," said the victim, who didn't want to be identified.

"That's when he took my pants off and started touching me, and then he flipped me over basically and he basically raped me."

The 11th grader claimed she tried to fight off her assailant and screamed throughout the 30-minute ordeal, but help never arrived.

Nobody walked through the area during the attack, she alleged.

When the bell rang, her attacker suddenly stopped, got up, and walked off.

The girl's mother said she has reported the assault to the Katy Independent School District authorities, who will review school surveillance cameras in hopes of nabbing a suspect.

She said she's "beyond angry" that something so shocking could occur within the confines of her daughter's school.

"This rapist needs to pay and he needs to understand, everybody needs to understand, that you just don't go around victimizing people's kids," said the victim's mom, who also didn't want to be identified.

The outraged mother also blamed the school for failing to protect her child.

"When we put out kids in the hands of another, especially a school situation, we expect our kids to come home the same way we sent them."

Both mother and daughter fear that the teen assailant has attacked other young girls in the surrounding area.

The teen claimed her attacker seemed comfortable and at ease during the assault.

School district officials, however, allege that the mother and daughter haven't been cooperating with a detective working on the case.

"Yesterday evening, a local media outlet reported an alleged sexual assault that was said to have taken place on the MCHS campus, Mayde Creek principal Ronnie Edwards said in a statement released on Thursday.

"As of this morning, the individual who made the claim has yet to respond to police inquiries to begin an investigation."

He encouraged anyone with knowledge of the attack to alert school officials and law enforcement, and warned that anyone associated with the ordeal would be punished.

"Sexual assault is an incident that campus administration and Katy ISD police investigate thoroughly to ensure student and staff safety."

"Students or other persons found to be involved in such a heinous crime will be disciplined in accordance with the Student Discipline Management Plan / Student Code of Conduct and applicable laws."
