The Fishburne Military Academy campus is still reeling from the allegations that one of their own cadets may be responsible for at least two sexual assaults on fellow classmates.

Police say they were informed of the possible assault on a 14-year-old about a week ago.

Based on that allegation, an investigation was begun, the offense was believed to have occurred on or about September 25 and during the course of that investigation, another victim was identified also 14.

Fishburne president and superintendent William Alexander says the allegations are being investigated by the Waynesboro Police Department but that they are cooperating fully with the investigation.

President Alexander says he's confident that his school still provides a safe environment for the students to learn.

Fishburne has a very distinguished history here in the Valley; we've been around since 1879. We pride ourselves in providing a safe learning and living environment for our people.

The student being investigated hasn't been arrested or charged but was expelled and is no longer a cadet at Fishburne.

We're going to continue to do our business, continue to ensure the safety and the good solid educational base for our young men as we have for 127 years.
