MONTCLAIR, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- Security has been stepped up at Montclair High School as an alleged sexual assault scandal is being investigated.

Officials say it happened in a school bathroom earlier this week -- an all gender bathroom that was established two years ago.

Students at Montclair High School were upset to hear there was an alleged assault.

"It's actually really surprising because Montclair's such a nice place, so it's just unexpected when you hear something like that, but it's a bad thing," one said.

One student said she had heard of students going into the bathroom to engage in nefarious activities, but nothing like this. She's upset that students are taking advantage of something that was meant to be a source of good.

"I don't think they should close the bathroom, I just think they should have a close eye on it, pay more attention," she said.

The incident is under investigation. 1010 WINS has reached out to the school for a response.
