    Canada - Alleged Schoolyard Rape: Calgary ALTA

    Shades of a few other cases here on WS, and a long-distance echo of Kitty Genovese as a 12 year-old girl is allegedly assaulted before a number of onlookers in a Calgary junior high schoolyard:

    A girl as young as 12 was attacked, and possibly raped, in a northeast schoolyard just before the supper hour Monday as a group of youths looked on and took photos.

    The alleged assault is reported to have happened in a school field adjacent to Clarence Sansom Junior High, on 24 Avenue N.E. in the community of Pineridge.

    Witnesses of the incident said they saw several young people standing on a set of bleachers looking to the ground below, where a young man was on top of a girl.

    The premier has weighed in, and no doubt others will follow. Shocking story, and if true symptomatic perhaps of the odd disconnectedness that seems part and parcel of this hyperconnected age.

    Update: new reporting notes that the investigation continues and may proceed with statutory rape or other charges once complete. Tick (a) for crime (sexual assault); (b) for alcohol-induced exhibitionism between a 16 year-old and a 12 year-old. An odd one.

    I wonder who reported this? It's very unclear what happened here!

    Twelve. Sigh...

    UPDATED: Sexual assault charges have now been laid against a 16 year-old in this case. Reporting on this has been a shambles -- apologies on behalf of a once-proud newspaper...
