Cops: Old Bethpage Middle School Student Assaulted

Police have not confirmed the nature of the assault, which they said happened last week.

Police requested supervision for an Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School student that was allegedly assaulted last week off school grounds, reported Nassau County Detectives.

Detectives reported that police were called Wednesday to record a report of an assault of a student. Police said the assault occurred at some point last week. The nature of the assault and the identity of the student have not been confirmed by police.

Plainview-Old Bethpage Superintendent Lorna Lewis said in a statement Thursday:

This is a matter that concerns an alleged incident that occurred outside of our schools and was reported to us. Our fantastic staff at Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School responded in a caring way to take care of the student’s need, and reported the matter to the appropriate authorities in full accordance with established school procedures.

There are no further details at this time, according to police.

Patch will update this story as more details become available.

If this is true, why hasn't the school district notified the parents, and it should go out to all parents of every school age child in the district.

We've updated the story to include a statement from Superintendent Lewis. The assault took place off campus.

What does the school district have to do with anything other than the child reported it to a school official? Maybe the story line should read "Plainview child assaulted, incident reported to POB School Officials". Without any more info, this isn't a story. As far as the first line reading "Police requested supervision", that means that the responding officers requested their supervisor (Sergeant). I get the impression the person writing the article just copied the info off the police log.
