    School officials in Wrentham, Massachusetts, say one student has allegedly sexually assaulted another.

    King Philip Regional High School administrators said Friday that it had been informed of the alleged incident, which occurred off school property. They did not say where it happened, but said local police were made aware of the allegations immediately.

    The school is in Wrentham, but it also serves the towns of Norfolk and Plainville.

    Officials said the school was cooperating with law enforcement authorities.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    "We take situations like this very seriously," the school said in a statement.

    Counselors will be made available to students next week, according to the school.

    No further information was immediately available.
