KALISPELL — Two of six Glacier High School freshman football players who were suspended from school and kicked off the team after reports of bullying on the team bus now face criminal charges.

Kalispell police say one 15-year-old boy is charged with sexual assault while another is charged with accountability to sexual assault. The charges were filed in Youth Court and the boys' names were not released.

The other four involved in the alleged assault of as many as eight teammates don't face criminal charges, but may face further punishment by the school.

Parents and grandparents of students on the bus told police that several players were taken to the back of the bus and assaulted and molested as the team returned from a game in Missoula on Sept. 12.
