Joplin Police: No Evidence To Support Alleged Rape At High School

Joplin, MO -

Joplin police today say there's not enough evidence to support charges behind an alleged rape that happened at Joplin's high school in February.  

Police said an 18-year-old student claimed a teenage boy raped her in one of the high school's stairwells.  Police were not releasing the age of the boy, only saying he was a juvenile.

Police said medical workers took some possible medical evidence from the alleged victim.  School officials said there were hundreds of security cameras throughout the high school, but none were inside stairwells, only at at entrances and exits to the stairwells.

Police say today though no charges have been filed, this is still an open investigation.
