A Columbus police officer was called to Waddell Elementary School on Tuesday about a report of inappropriate sexual misconduct between a boy and girl at the 6101 Miller Road school.
Police Lt. Joyce Dent-Fitzpatrick said the Special Victims Unit is waiting to interview the 10-year-old girl, the victim in the case, and a 9-year-old boy.
Dent-Fitzpatrick said she was notified about the case just before 2 p.m. A report on the incident shows the misconduct occurred about 9:30 a.m. in a classroom and the officer responded to the school about 1 p.m.
“We haven’t got it yet,” the lieutenant said of the report. “We were called on it and we are going to pick it up . We are going to interview the little girl.”
Never miss a local story.
No other details were noted in the case other than the inappropriate sexual misconduct in the classroom, she said.
Valerie Fuller, director of communications for the Muscogee County School District, said Thursday that officials have a report of a fourth grade male student who reportedly engaged in inappropriate contact with another fourth grade female student at Waddell Elementary.
School district security has been notified as well as Columbus police and the Department of Family and Children Services. The incident remains under investigation, Fuller said in a release.
