6 suspended amid Missouri school rape allegations

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Six Kansas City school employees are suspended and two
students face charges in juvenile court in connection with a 14-year-old girl's
allegations that a boy repeatedly raped her at school.

The suspensions at Southwest Early College Campus came after school officials
vowed to increase measures to protect students after an alleged rape in August
at the same school.

The girl in the latest case told authorities a 14-year-old boy raped her ``on
numerous occasions'' over the last month while a 13-year-old girl stood in the
hall as a lookout. The boy and the alleged lookout have been charged in juvenile
court with one count each of rape and sodomy and ordered to remain detained.

A district spokesman declined to identify the suspended employees or their
positions at the school.
