The New Orleans Police department is investigating an alleged sexual assault on a 10- year old girl while attending Langston Hughes Elementary according to a local news report on Saturday, March 29, 2014.
The alleged attack was made on Thursday during after school care by a 12 year old boy. The mother of the victim learned about the attack when she received a phone call from the principal of the school.
The other of the child decided to go public with the attack in hopes of preventing another sexual attack on another child. She had this to say about the incident, "I don't want that to happen to someone else and their child. It could happen to someone else even worse than what happened to my child. That's something you have to live with for the rest of your life."
Representatives of the school declined to comment on the situation while the investigation was still in progress.
The girl was taken to Children's Hospital in New Orleans for treatment by her mother.
