FAWN TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A mother in the Highlands School District claims her 5-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted by two kindergarten classmates in the cafeteria at Fawn Primary Center.

KDKA is not identifying the family because the child is the alleged victim of a sex crime.

“This whole situation has me completely sick,” the mother told KDKA’s Kym Gable.

The girl told her mother that on Thursday; the boys put their hands down the back and front of her pants.

The family immediately went to police and then to Children’s Hospital where the medical team examined the little girl using its child abuse protocol.

The mother went on to say, “All of this could have been prevented and my daughter would not have had to go through what she went through, and I want someone held responsible. They thought she was going to have to have a rape kit done yesterday. My 5-year-old daughter should never had had to have that done.”

A district spokesperson gave KDKA this statement:
“Highlands School District administration is aware of the allegations and is working with local authorities regarding the investigation. The district cannot comment on this ongoing legal matter.”
