MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Investigators have charged two Horry County teenagers for an alleged sexual assault on a school bus.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office says the bus was traveling through Marion County to an event in the Pee Dee on Jan. 22 when the assault took place.

According to investigators, 17-year-old Shaquawan McGill of Loris pulled down his pants on the bus, then tried to put his hands down the pants of a 15-year-old girl.

When the teen girl resisted and started to scream, the report states a 14-year-old boy covered her mouth with his hand.

Marion County Sheriff Mark Richardson said that both McGill and the 14-year-old boy have been charged with criminal sexual conduct. McGill's bond was set at $40,000 with GPS monitoring.

The juvenile's case has been turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
