Proctor High School Student Charged With Sexually Assaulting Teammate In Locker Room

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A Proctor High School football player has been charged for an alleged sexual assault of a football teammate last fall.

According to the St. Louis County Attorney's Office, 17-year-old Alec John Baney was charged Friday in juvenile court with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Prosecutors have asked that the case be moved into criminal court.

According to the petition, Baney, with the help of others, held the victim down and removed his pants outside of the Proctor football locker room. Baney then allegedly penetrated the victim with the handle of a toilet plunger.

Last September, the Proctor Police Department received a report of a sexual assault at the high school and began an investigation.

Following the investigation, the coach, Derek Parendo, resigned after 13 years.

No additional charges are being filed, but the investigation remains open, the attorney's office said.
