“Both suspects physically assaulted another male student in similar fashion as to that involving the Charlie Rape Gang,” said Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris in an e-mail.
The boys are ages 11 and 12 and live in Evans, Morris said.
Bel Air Elementary administrators informed the sheriff’s office Friday after receiving an e-mail from a concerned parent.
“As we understand it, this type of activity has been occurring for several days, but no additional victims have come forward,” Morris said.
The boys are awaiting a hearing before county Juvenile Court Judge Douglas Flanagan.
The Charlie Rape Gang is a group of five Lakeside Middle School pupils accused last month of sexually assaulting classmates by “dry-humping” them.
Two of the boys with a history of discipline problems were expelled by a school system hearing officer during a March 7 hearing for the remainder of this school year and the first semester of next school year. The other boys received additional days of in-school suspension.
All the boys still face charges of simple battery in juvenile court.
