State troopers were called to Christiana Hospital Tuesday night for a report of a sexual assault that happened at Dickinson High School in Wilmington, Delaware. Police say the victim was an employee of the school who was retriving athletic equipment. She had just left a locker room when the attacker grabbed her from behind, placed his hand over her mouth, and forced her to the floor where he sexually assaulted her.

Shortly after midnight, police obtained a search warrant for 15-year-old Taquian Hunt. Police say Hunt was seen in the school prior to the attack, and at one point contacted the victim to see if he could use the phone to call for a ride home.

Investigators add, Hunt was seen on surveillance cameras in school hallways in the time frame of the attack.

Hunt faces a number of charges, and was ordered not to have any contact with the victim or with Dickinson High School.

Polcie say the suspect in this case attends the Central Special Education School on Telegraph Road in Wilmington. He does, however, play football for Dickinson High School as an after school activity and was permitted to be at the school when this incident occurred.
