Alpha students charged in alleged sex act on bus

CONYERS — Two students at Alpha Academy have been arrested in connection with untoward behavior on the school bus that occurred just days into the new school year.

According to the incident report filed by the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office, a 16-year-old male and a 15-year-old female were sitting together on the bus after school on July 31 when the two began engaging in a sexual act.

The bus surveillance video showed the two engaged in the act and the boy buckling his belt when it was over.

“On the video I could hear the bus driver saying multiple times, ‘everyone get back into your assigned seats.’ It appeared from the video that most of the kids on the bus were aware of the sexual act taking place,” the incident report states.

After further investigation, the two were arrested and received juvenile charges. The 16-year-old was charged Thursday with child molestation and the female was charged with sodomy.
