An alleged hazing incident is under investigation at the high school in Woburn, Massachusetts.

The Woburn Police Department received a complaint Wednesday involving members of a Woburn High School sports team regarding an incident earlier in the school year, according to a joint statement from Woburn Police Chief Robert Rufo, Mayor Scott Galvin and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Matthew Crowley.
