Transgender Teen Recants Attack Story

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Police say a transgender teen who said he was beaten and sexually assaulted in a California high school bathroom has recanted the story.

Hercules police spokeswoman Detective Connie Van Putten says detectives interviewed the student Tuesday and determined nothing had happened to him.

On Monday, the 15-year-old student reported he was attacked by three boys in a bathroom at a suburban San Francisco public school.

 

The teen, who is biologically female but identifies as male, had told officers he was leaving a boy's bathroom late Monday morning at Hercules Middle/High School when the assailants pushed him inside a large stall and attacked him.
