MATTHEW LEBLANC | The Journal Gazette
Police and Fort Wayne Community Schools are investigating claims a Snider girls basketball player was battered by her coach during a game last week.
A police report filed Wednesday said the girl, who is not identified, told Coach Greg Friend not to touch her during a timeout in a game at North Side High School last week. The girl later told police Friend hurt her.
The report is heavily redacted and contains few specifics.
Krista Stockman, a Fort Wayne Community Schools spokeswoman, confirmed the district is investigating.
