Police are investigating claims that a Queensland high school student was allegedly raped by another student in the toilets.
A police spokesperson said the incident occurred in a Rockhampton school and no charges have been made as yet.
'The QPS has an open file relating to the indecent treatment of a child at a Rockhampton educational facility,' a police spokesman told The Courier Mail.
The boy’s father told the publication his son was told to ‘pull down his pants,’ before he was allegedly assaulted from behind.
‘We’re at a loss as to what else we can do,’ he said of his son's ongoing emotional torment, which has reportedly included suicide attempts.
'Now we’re having to do medical tests and shipping him in and out of hospital because he is bleeding from the bowel and having flashbacks when he goes back to school – but we need to have tests done for the legal side of things as well.'
A spokesman for Queensland’s Education department 'appropriate disciplinary action' was taken.
