(KMOV.com) - Police are investigating a possible rape at East St. Louis High School.

Authorities said the incident occurred Tuesday and was caught on tape. Police said a boy and girl went into a closet and had sex while another boy was outside keeping a watch on the door.

According to police, the two students are in a special needs class together and have made trips to that particular closet before.

"We don't know why the closet door is unlocked and the school district is doing everything to assist us to make sure it never happens again," East St. Louis Chief of Police Michael Floore said.

Authorities said charges have not yet been filed.
