Grapevine-Colleyville ISD elementary school student reportedly sexually assaulted by another student

Grapevine police are investigating a report of a student being sexually assaulted by another student at an elementary school.

The alleged sexual assault happened on Sept. 19 at Silver Lake Elementary School, which is part of the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District.

Few details have been released, as police said they are working to "protect the family and the investigation."

The news has the community on edge.

"If you’re entrusting your children to this school then you want to know and be fully assured that your kids are not just getting the best education, but most importantly that your kids are safe," said Daniel Little who lives near the school.

GCISD notified parents of the incident on Thursday morning, sending an email saying in part, "Police promptly began an investigation that is ongoing, and we are fully cooperating with the police department."

Police are not discussing details of the case, but Grapevine PD victim services advocate Makayla Moore wants parents to know why a number of days elapsed between the alleged incident and when it was made public.

"We know that children disclose in their own time and in their own words and that might take a few times talking to someone to get what happened," she said. "We want to limit re-traumatizing a child as possible."

Anyone who suspects their child could be a victim is asked to call Grapevine police at 817-410-8127.

Grapevine PD’s Victim Services Advocate is also available. She can be reached at 817-410-3491 or
