Football player's sex attack probe continuing

TULSA (AP)  An Oklahoma school official said Wednesday that more information is being gathered regarding a 16-year-old suburban Tulsa football player's allegations that he was sexually assaulted by several of his teammates during an event at the superintendent's house.

Bixby Board of Education President Ron Schnare said in a statement that "a number of interviews have been conducted and all of the facts are being gathered" in an internal investigation by the school district's outside legal counsel and the Bixby High School administration.

A search warrant filed Monday in Tulsa district court accuses administrators at the high school of waiting days before reporting the September incident. Investigators have seized the cellphones of Superintendent Kyle Wood and other school officials and given them a Dec. 1 deadline to turn over their emails regarding "sexual assault, hazing or bullying involving members of the Bixby football team in 2016 or 2017."
