Police Probe Alleged Assault Involving 2 Gallaudet HS Students During School Trip
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WJZ) — Anne Arundel County police are investigating an alleged assault involving two students from Gallaudet University’s secondary school during a school trip to Annapolis.
Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said Tuesday that police are conducting a criminal investigation into the alleged incident on a bus in the county on Saturday morning. He says police were notified Sunday night.
