BRADENTON -- Bradenton police are investigating after an 11-year-old student reported Thursday they had been "inappropriately touched" by other students on three separate occasions during one school day at Sugg Middle School, according to Bradenton police.

Details were sketchy, but police said officers contacted the child protective services hotline, which refused to become involved, according to a report.

Sugg Middle is located at 3801 59th St. W., Bradenton.

The school resource officer completed the initial investigation for detectives to follow up, according the report.
