(SUNTIMES) — A suit filed Monday against the Maine Township High School District claims three Maine West freshman students were sexually assaulted during a soccer team hazing ritual at the school.

The suit goes into details of the hazing that have not been released by either the Des Plaines Police Department or the school district, which have both conducted investigations. Since the Sept. 27 incident, police have charged six students as juveniles while a total of ten students have been disciplined, according to the district. Some of the ten students were barred from playing on the soccer team and one student told ABC News he was suspended.

During the investigation, two soccer coaches have been reassigned with pay, and three other coaches who are not teachers were removed from their coaching responsibilities, according to the district.

“Inappropriate behavior” was the only official reason cited so far for the actions.
