(MYFOXTWINCITIES) — NEW ULM, Minn. – A few weeks ago, rape tag was a game no school official or parent in New Ulm, Minn. had ever heard of. After some swift action, it’s game they don’t expect to see elementary school students playing again.

Last month, a parent alerted Washington Elementary principal Bill Sprung to the game being played by a handful of fifth grade students. Sprung told KEYC-TV in Mankato he took swift action to put an end to the game, alerting recess supervisors and having teachers speak to their students.

The school said rape tag is game similar to freeze tag, but players use a hip thrust to unfreeze a tagged player.
