(PORTAGE) - Portage police are investigating another report of repeated gropings on a school bus in the Northwestern Indiana city.

Detective Captain Terry Swickard says a 13-year-old middle school boy is accused of grabbing a girl's breasts. The investigation includes claims that the actions and some inappropriate comments happened over an extended period.

The investigation follows the arrest of three teens after police say the boys terrorized others on their Portage school bus for nearly six months, including groping girls, threatening other riders and making blowtorches from aerosol cans.

Swickard says the arrests of the three high school students made other students more aware that they can report similar attacks.
