15-year-old accused of sexual assault in Yonkers school

A 15-year-old high school student in Yonkers has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a classmate.

School officials say a 15-year-old girl accused the boy of forcing her to perform oral sex during school hours at Palisade Prep. The case is being handled by Family Court because the boy is younger than 16.

Parents are accusing the school of having insufficient security to watch over students.
