Posted: Updated:
SAHUARITA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson News Now is learning new details in the case of seven Sahuarita High School wrestlers charged with the kidnapping and assault of another student.

Tucson News Now obtained the police report from the incident. The alleged attack happened to a Sahuarita High School freshman by members of the school's wrestling team.

The initial case narrative from the Sahuarita Police Department describes a violent and graphic assault inside the school's locker room.

A lot of the details are too graphic to detail, but the report describes how six to eight wrestlers grabbed and held down the alleged victim.

It also states the boy yelled for them to get off of him. It is unclear how the boy got out of the locker room. The incident was reported by the victim's friend who had told his mother what happened.

Seven wrestlers, three of them adults, have been charged with assault and kidnapping.

The case narrative also includes allegations of sexual assault.

Sahuarita police confirm they are considering these allegations very seriously and aren't ruling out anything. But, at this point they say they do not have enough concrete evidence to move forward with any sex-related charges.
