Police Investigating Possible Sexual Assault Of Bixby Football Player

Posted: Updated:
BIXBY, Oklahoma -

Bixby Police are investigating the possible sexual assault of a Spartan football player.

Officers aren’t saying much because it’s an ongoing investigation, but did confirm it involves a football player.

Police said the incident happened before Halloween but wasn't reported to police until last week.

Bixby Police Assistant Chief Andy Choate said they did find enough information to believe a crime occurred but they are still investigating.

"This is very much an active investigation, and BPD has since gained enough information to believe the crime occurred," Choate said.

Bixby Public Schools released a statement saying:

On November 9, 2017, the Bixby Board of Education went into executive session to discuss with its outside independent legal counsel an ongoing investigation involving certain Bixby High School students. Under state and federal law the District, including its board of education and staff, is precluded from commenting on any facts or information involving any students or employees who may be involved in the investigation. As a result, throughout this investigation the Board and its staff will have no comment on the investigation, including but not limited to the nature and scope of the investigation or the persons or subject matter of the investigation. If, as a result of the investigation, the Board is required to take any action, it will do so pursuant to a proper agenda item and in open session. No further comments on this matter will be made by members of the Board or relevant staff at this time.
