Obama girls’ school rocked by rape claim
A female high school student at a prominent private school in Washington told police she was raped on campus by her ex-boyfriend, District of Columbia police said Friday.
The student at Sidwell Friends School reported to police that her classmate forced her to have sex on Wednesday, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said. Sidwell Friends is an exclusive Quaker school attended by the children of many of Washington’s elite, including the two daughters of President Barack Obama. It was not clear where on the campus the alleged rape occurred.
The two students knew each other and had a previous sexual relationship, according to a police report. The student told police late Wednesday night that the rape occurred in the afternoon and evening hours, the report said.
The investigation is in the early stages, and police have not been provided with any physical evidence that a rape occurred, Sternbeck said.
