FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Police spokesperson said the department has sought a “criminal complaint” against the Framingham High teen who assaulted another in the girls bathroom at the high school.

“A criminal complaint has been sought.  Since the video is circulating and the juvenile is identifiable we will not be releasing any other information,” said Framingham Police spokesperson Lt. Rachel Mickens.

Framingham Superintendent of Schools Bob Tremblay told SOURCE the district is cooperating with police and “assault & battery” charges will be filed.

Supt. Tremblay also said the district is taking the incident seriously and is seeking disciplinary charges against the female student.

On February 1, the high school principal and administration said the “administration is aware of a disturbing video currently circulating on social media. The video was filmed by a student showing an assault in a girls’ bathroom. We are not minimizing the seriousness of the incident, but want families to know that the students involved are known to each other and at no time was the greater school community in danger. “

Principal Carolyn Banach in an email to families on February 1 wrote the “Administration identified both the victim and aggressor at the time of the incident, which occurred toward the end of the school day. A thorough investigation began immediately and is still underway in collaboration with the Framingham Police Department.”
