STRATFORD - (AP)- A member of the Bunnell High School wrestling team in Stratford is charged with sexually assaulting a teammate.

The 16-year-old boy is charged with one count of fourth-degree sexual assault. The boy's name has not been released and he has been released on bond.

Police say the charges are based on an incident last December during a wrestling team practice session at the school.

Police say the 17-year-old victim was pinned down by another wrestler and the 16-year-old allegedly bent down and exposed his genitals in the victim's face.

Police say the victim managed to free himself and went to a water cooler to rinse out his mouth, saying the whole incident was disgusting.
