Grandmother claims grandson sexually assaulted at elementary school

A Memphis grandmother said her grandson was sexually assaulted in the bathroom of a Memphis City Elementary School.

"We may not ever know who this person is and he may not never be caught but I don't want this to happen to another child," the grandmother said.

We are not identifying the woman in order to protect the alleged victim.

Officials with the Memphis police department and the city school district now confirm they are investigating the report filed by the family.

An investigation so new that Action News 5 has chosen not to reveal where the alleged attack took place. 

The woman said her grandson was behaving differently when he got home from school on Tuesday. 
 
"He went straight to the corner. He sit in the corner and he went to sleep and that's not usually how he do," the grandmother said.

It was not until later that night that family members found out that something was wrong.

"When he woke up he told his mom...said my butt hurt and she asked him what's wrong and he said come into the bathroom and let me tell you," the grandmother said.

The woman said her grandson did not recognize his attacker but she wants other parents to be on alert.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
