HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) — Hot Springs police have made two arrests after a locker room rape was reported last week.

According to Cpl. Kirk Zaner, a 16-year-old female at Lakeside High School reported that two males approached her while she was inside the field house Thursday, and forced her into the girls’ locker room.  He said that once they were in the girls’ locker room, the males are said to have turned the lights off and forcefully sexually assaulted her.

Two 14-year-old males were arrested Friday and were booked into the Garland County Juvenile Detention Center without bond.

A statement from Lakeside School District read as follows:

A high school female student reported to Lakeside Administration Thursday morning that she had been sexually assaulted by two male high school students on campus, Wednesday after school. Administration notified police immediately. The two male high school students presently are not on campus. At this time matters are being handled by the Hot Springs Police Department. For privacy issues, Lakeside School District will not release any student information.
