Bicycling teens accused of touching Bowdoin students’ buttocks

BRUNSWICK, Maine — Two Freeport teens were arrested Tuesday night after police said they rode around the Bowdoin College campus on their bicycles and struck at least four female students on their buttocks.

The teens, whose names were not released because they are juveniles, are 16-year-old males, Brunswick police Cmdr. Marc Hagan said Wednesday.

Five Brunswick police officers went to the campus at 11:43 p.m. after Bowdoin security reported the incidents. None of the victims were injured, Hagan said.

Officers found one of the suspects on campus, and that teen allegedly gave police the name of the other suspect, who officers then found at his home.

They were each charged with misdemeanor unlawful sexual touching. One of the two allegedly was found in possession of hashish oil and was also charged with unlawful possession of a scheduled drug.

Both were released to their parents and are due to appear in juvenile court at West Bath District Court on June 15.
