Fleming said following a lengthy investigation, the police department discussed evidence obtained with the Iredell County District Attorney’s Office, another student was charged with second-degree forcible rape, two counts of second-degree sexual offense and one count of first-degree kidnapping. The charges were filed with the Department of Juvenile Justice.

The name of the student charged was not released due to age.

Fleming said Iredell-Statesville School District fully cooperated with the TPD during the investigation.
