"On October 31, 2023, the Clyde Police Department began investigating an assault of a 14-year-old male victim that occurred in the male locker room of Clyde-Savannah High School when the victim’s parent became aware of a recording of this incident that was circulating on social media.
Police were able to obtain a copy of the video.
Subsequent to the investigation, four juvenile males were identified as suspects. Their names are not being released, due to their ages.
While the indictment doesn’t indicate the suspects as members of the Clyde-Savannah varsity football team, the school district’s superintendent previously released a statement to the community indicating an incident involving several members of the team resulted in disciplinary actions and led to the premature ending of their season.
These individuals were indicted by a Wayne County Grand Jury on Thursday (11/9) as follows: a 17-year-old male from Clyde, NY, a 16-year-old male from Clyde, NY, and a 15-year-old male from Clyde, NY, on Aggravated Sexual Abuse 1st (B Felony), Hazing 1st (A Misdemeanor) and Forcible Touching (A Misdemeanor). Lastly, a 16-year-old male from Clyde, NY, on two counts of Unlawful Surveillance 2nd (E Felony).
All four suspects were arrested, processed, and brought to Wayne County Youth Part for arraignment, and a Court Order of Protection was issued to the victim.
All four were released to their parents and are ordered back in court on November 15 and 16, 2023.
Clyde Police Department was assisted by the New York State Police, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office during the course of this investigation.
This is an active investigation. "
