Charges expected in student assault

Lebanon police said Thursday charges are expected in a nearly month-old assault investigation involving Lebanon students. 

Police Chief Scott Bowen said officers responded to the West Hills Baptist Church parking lot at 1240 Leeville Pike on Jan. 24 after a call came into dispatch regarding a possible assault. He said officers started an investigation. 

Bowen said a girl victim told officers two male suspects, one of whom she knew, assaulted her. 

“Through the investigation, it appears she went there to sell the suspect narcotics,” Bowen said. “The investigation is ongoing, and charges related to the robbery are expected soon.”

Bowen said Thursday Wilson County schools officials were aware of the incident and investigation.
