ST. CLAIRSVILLE — A group of about 15 people staged a protest this morning outside of St. Clairsville High School.

The protest was related to the alleged sexual assault of a fifth grade student during a football game on Oct. 13. St. Clairsville police have investigated the allegation and turned the evidence over to the Belmont County Prosecutor’s office for review of possible charges.

A fifth grade girl allegedly knocked down another fifth grade girl, held her down on the ground, called over a group of other fifth graders, let her up off the ground and then pulled down her pants and underwear to expose her to the group.

The accused student received a five-day in-school suspension from the school district.
