6-year-old accused of sexually assaulting other kids on Boston school bus
BOSTON — The motion to put monitors on all school buses has been circulating around a charter school in Boston after reports of sexual abuse.
Community advocates are urging Boston Public School officials to put monitors on all school buses after reports that a 6-year-old child sexually abused other children. Police were first notified of the incidents on Nov. 3 by Boston Renaissance Charter School in Hyde Park.
Boston Police were unable to give information about the case due to the children's ages.
A mother of one of the alleged victims spoke with NECN about what her son endured. She told them that the suspect touched her son's genitals several times and had asked her son to touch his. The mother also said that the suspect threatened that there were guns at his house, which he would use if the victim told anyone.
The school notified parents of the incidents on Monday - over two weeks after the incidents were reported to police.
Renaissance Charter School is not part of the Boston Public School District, but they do provide their transportation.
