Houston police have charged two 10-year-old boys from the Houston school district with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy on a school bus.

Police confirmed Friday that they filed the rare charges this week after watching bus surveillance video from the Houston Independent School District and conducting numerous interviews.

The mother of the alleged victim said her son would come home from Thompson Elementary with his belt off or his pants unbuttoned, but she did not think much about it.

Then, she said, a police investigator called and said the boy may have been molested on the bus in late August.

“He has a hard time sleeping,” the mother said. “He’s just been having a hard time. He cries a lot.”
