A 14-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting seven school girls at Orange Farm school, will be suspended.

An Orange Farm school pupil accused of sexually assaulting about seven girls at his school will be suspended, the Gauteng education department said on Friday.

"We will suspend him and then take him to a disciplinary hearing while we investigate the allegations," spokeswoman Phumla Sekhonyane said.

"We have also called in the police because of the seriousness of the alleged crimes."

The department was alerted about the allegations at the Extension 8, Orange Farm school on Thursday.

The 14-year-old boy is accused of luring girls into a toilet, taking off their clothes, and touching them.

"Today, trauma counselling is being provided to all the learners," said Sekhonyane.

She said criminal charges would probably be sought by parents, but it had not yet been confirmed.

Police spokesman Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini told Sapa he did not have any information on the case.

"No, I don't have information on that," he said.
