Deer Park H.S. JV basketball team benched after athlete allegedly attacked

Deer Park High School has canceled its JV basketball team's season amid reports of disturbing locker room behavior.

An eight-grade team member was allegedly attacked in the locker room last week by his teammate. According to police, the 13-year-old was grabbed by individuals and was touched in an inappropriate, sexual manner.

Suffolk police say a 14-year-old student has been charged with juvenile delinquency.
