GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KHGI) — A Grand Island middle school student has been arrested following a sexual assault report on campus.

Grand Island Public Schools (GIPS) sent a news release Wednesday explaining that a Walnut Middle School student was arrested following an alleged sexual assault on a fellow female student. The report claims the incident occurred at the school on April 22.

GIPS said the alleged incident was reported by a separate student a few days after it happened, on April 30.
