    Three teenagers are facing serious charges for allegedly assaulting and sexually assaulting a football player inside a high school locker room in Leesburg, Virginia.

    Two 17-year-old students and one 16-year-old student at Tuscarora High School were charged Thursday. One of them faces charges of sexual battery and the two others were charged with assault and battery, police said.

    The teens allegedly assaulted an underclassman on the football team on Oct. 1 after school hours. Police did not provide an age for the victim.

    A school resource officer learned about the allegations on Oct. 5.

    Police said the allegations did not meet the state's criteria of hazing.
