HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Henrico Police Department said two girls were assaulted on or near the campus of Douglas S. Freeman High School on Thursday, Sept. 30. The suspected assaulter was brought into custody for charges related to that incident and another one that occurred in Short Pump.
The assault that occurred at the school was reported to a Henrico Police School Resource Officer that morning. This prompted the school district and police department to investigate the incident.
Henrico Police found information that connected the school attack to another one that happened the day before outside of a commercial building on W. Broad Street near Cox Road.
