Alleged Crepe Caper Prompts Police Probe Of Ohio Middle School Students

Eight Ohio middle school students could face felony assault charges for allegedly putting bodily fluids in crepes that were consumed by teachers, according to police who say that the young suspects recorded their acts and shared the video with fellow classmates.

The suspects are all 14 years old, with the exception of one student who recently turned 15, a police spokesperson said.         

Investigators say the May 16 incident occurred at Hyatts Middle School in Powell, a city 15 miles north of Columbus.

As part of a “Global Gourmet” home economics class, students competed in a cooking competition that was judged by teachers. It was during the food preparation that the suspects reportedly placed urine and semen into crepes (which were later consumed by several adult victims).

Lab tests are being conducted to determine whether, in fact, bodily fluids were added to the crepes (or whether the teenage suspects engaged in a prank that made it seem like the food was adulterated).

It was only after the crepes had been eaten that school employees learned of a troubling video that was circulating among students. The clip appeared to show bodily fluids being added to the crepes.

A school resource officer was apprised of the video, prompting a criminal investigation by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office. No arrests or charges have been filed in connection with the crepe caper.

The teenage suspects could face assorted felony charges, including assault with a bodily substance. Last Thursday’s home ec incident occurred exactly one week before the close of school.

In a statement, school administrators said that the “safety and security of our students and staff is of utmost importance,” and that “anyone found in violation of school policies will be held accountable for their actions.”
