Ashland City, TN ----   Investigators with the Cheatham County Sheriffs Department are looking into allegations a sexual assault happened at a high school.

Cheatham County schools say that alleged assault happened Tuesday at Cheatham County Central High involving a male student against a female.

Both are juveniles.

The allegations are shocking to parents like Jassan Bumpus.

"I heard they've found video tape of a young man who cornered a girl in a section of the school that was remote and he raped her," said Bumpus.  "Makes you wonder how something like that could happen."

Fox 17 News has learned the boy is facing a petition in Juvenile Court.

At some point he will appear and face that petition.

Cheatham County Schools says the boy is not currently in school.

His future will depend on the outcome of the juvenile court proceedings.

"The school administration immediately turned the investigation over to law enforcement," said the district in a statement.
