WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Authorities have booked into jail a 28-year-old man who has been identified as a person of interest in a sexually battery at a Wichita high school.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the man is being held on suspicion of multiple charges, including sexual battery and criminal discharge of a firearm. Jail records show the man was booked into jail Wednesday and is being held on a $65,000 bond.
Authorities began investigating in September after an 18-year-old student told administrators that a stranger approached her in Wichita East High School and asked her where the gym was located. Police said the teen alleged that the man followed her into a bathroom and sexually battered her as she attempted to return to the hall.
The school has adopted stricter security measures.
