Brockton School Officials Probe Classroom Sex Assault

The Brockton Enterprise reports that school committee members are questioning how the alleged repeated sexual assault of an 8-year-old girl could happen in a city classroom, during school hours and where a teacher may have been present.

Stonehill College junior Kevin Treseler, 21, of Millis, faces charges of child rape and indecent assault on a child under 14. The victim told police the incidents happened numerous times in a classroom at the Angelo School during school hours.

Treseler has pleaded not guilty. The Enterprise reports that he told police he did not touch the girl inappropriately and “suggested that the victim was angry with him for not having picked her for group,” according to a Brockton police report.
