Oklahoma House suspends page program after incident

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma's speaker of the House says he's suspending a high school page program following an incident in which a teenage girl says she was sexually assaulted.

In an email to House members Thursday, Charles McCall says he is suspending the program pending an internal review.

Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said his agency is investigating after the teen alleged she was sexually assaulted by a male teenager who was also serving as a page. No arrests have been made.

The alleged assault took place at a hotel away from the Capitol where the students were staying with chaperones.

The Oklahoma Senate has a separate page program, and Senate President Pro Tem Greg Treat says he plans to review the program's protocols to make sure students are protected.
