 BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- A southwestern Illinois teenager has been charged with aggravated battery and criminal sexual assault for allegedly attacking a pregnant teenager at his high school.

The Belleville News-Democrat reported Tuesday that St. Clair County prosecutors charged 17-year-old David Fields of Shiloh as an adult.

Authorities allege the attack happened Friday afternoon at Belleville East High School, and Fields was arrested at a Shiloh home hours after the attack was reported.

Police say the pregnant teen knew Fields.

Online court records don’t show whether Fields has an attorney. Fields does not have a listed home telephone number.
