HUTCHINSON, Kan. | A case of alleged bullying at Hutchinson High School has been turned over to the Kansas attorney general's office.
The case stems from an incident Wednesday in which a 14-year-old male student was reportedly tied up with a jump rope by four older teens.
The Hutchinson News reports that the case was turned over to the attorney general's office because Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder knows the alleged victim's father, who is a law enforcement officer.
A Hutchinson Police Department report indicates the alleged victim sustained minor injuries. No arrests have been made in the case.
District officials said four teens have been punished in connection with the case, but they won't comment on what disciplinary action was used.
