Wintersville police are tight lipped about the investigation of an alleged sexual assault near Indian Creek High School.
Multiple sources close to the victims involved have confirmed that an alleged sexual assault did happen as police are saying, but gave more details:
Last Friday evening, a 16 year old male and his teenage girlfriend were walking along a trail near the high school when 33 year old Andre Wade allegedly jumped them with a knife. He put the knife to the boys throat and he was forced to watch while his gf was sexually assaulted.
Wade was arrested and charged with rape, felonious assault and possession of cocaine. He was arraigned on Monday.
Wade remains in jail on $250,000 bond.
