COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Another Midland Middle School student has come forward with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior against a fellow classmate.

A 13-year-old girl says she was groped by a 13 or 14 year old boy in one of the classrooms at the school on Warm Springs Road sometime between October 1st and October 18th.

She says the teen grabbed her breasts and vaginal area.

An arrest has not been made but police say they have a suspect and the case is being investigated as a sexual battery.

Officials in the Columbus Police Department's Youth Services Division say this incident is separate from two other recent incidents at the school of Warm Springs Road where a 7th grader and 8th grader exposed themselves.   [Read: Middle school boys accused of showing genitals to girls]

The 7th grader is facing a public indecency charge and the 8th grader faces five counts of child molestation because investigators say he made at least one of the girls touch him.
