Police say two teens have been charged with sexual assault in light of allegations involving a fellow private school student in St. Catharines, Ont.

Niagara regional police say they learned in December about the “on-campus conduct” of students at Ridley College that spanned from September 2018 and August 2019.

Police say two 16-year-old boys who are international students at the school surrendered to detectives on Wednesday.

Both boys were charged with sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon and sexual assault party to the offence.

They say the alleged victim is a boy under the age of 16. Neither he nor the accused can be publicly identified because they are underage.

The school says it learned of the alleged assault in December and reported it to both police and children’s services.
