Several Woburn High School students are facing charges after a 14-year-old football player reported being attacked and sexually assaulted by his teammates, NewsCenter 5 has learned.
Sources said a total of seven students are facing charges in juvenile court.
In February, Kevin Coucelos came forward with allegations that his 14-year-old son was the victim of attacks in September. The family, which filed a lawsuit against the school and the city, also shared a video of the alleged incident.
“It’s very disturbing, very sad, and it kills me that I wasn’t there to protect him,” Coucelos said. “It eats me alive to see the mob of kids and football players bullied him, harassed him, sexually assaulted him, physically assaulted him.”
