Lorain Police are investigating an incident at a Lorain Elementary School where one third grade boy was caught performing a sexual act on another third grade boy in a school hallway. The child told authorities that he learned the behavior from his father’s pornography, a claim his parents deny. Although Children Services have been notified no charges are expected.

Detective Mark Carpentiere said they get reports all the time of children engaged in such acts, and he said such incidents are always cause for concern because it could be a red flag for abuse.
Police said the incident was consensual, but experts said parents in this and similar cases should be aware of signs that their child is suffering from a traumatic event. Signs such as trouble sleeping, nightmares, bed-wetting and change in appetite could be signs that a child is in need of help.

The school is considering disciplinary action against the two boys. The school will be sent home Tuesday to inform students of the incident.
