STORY COUNTY, Iowa (WHO) — A Roland teenager and two-time state wrestling champion is being charged with felony assault.
According to the Story County Sheriff’s Office, the 17-year-old student from Roland was charged this week. The alleged assault happened “in the early part of 2022”, according to a new release. That release said the student stripped the victim of their clothes then penetrated the victim’s anus with a pencil. The student is being charged as an adult. He is scheduled to make his next court appearance on November 28th.
Authorities said they received an anonymous tip about the assault earlier this year. That tip accused multiple wrestlers of taking part in a hazing incident. A second teen involved in the incident is being charged in juvenile court.
