EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- A 14-year-old boy has been charged with indecent exposure and unlawful imprisonment in an assault on a 13-year-old girl on a Marysville Middle School bus.

Court papers filed Thursday say the boy began tickling the girl March 1, pushed her down on the floor, pulled down his pants and sat on her head.

Four other boys accused of holding the girl down are in a juvenile court diversion program.

The assault ended when another girl pulled the boy off the victim.

The Daily Herald reports (http://is.gd/t16w4o ) it happened during a chaotic bus ride. It was out of the driver's sight, but recorded on video.

Four boys were expelled and three suspended. After appeals two remain expelled and two suspended.
