Teenager arrested for assault on Onslow County school bus

Sexual assault on school bus

ONSLOW COUNTY - A teen was arrested for attacking a female on a school bus servicing White Oak High School in Onslow County.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office said Christian Kellum, 19, allegedly bit a female on her breasts, put his hand down her pants, exposed himself, and forced her to touch him. Onslow County School officials said he's a student at White Oak High School. "He's an adult," the victim's mother said. "He shouldn't even be at the school, period."

He was charged with sexual battery, indecent exposure, and assault on a female. According to officials, the offense happened on March 27, 2015 and Kellum was formally charged on April 8, 2015.

Another arrest warrant obtained by NewsChannel 12 states that this wasn't the first time Kellum was arrested for sexual assault on a student. The warrant says Kellum was arrested in October 2014 and charged with sexual battery. That student tells us that she took Kellum to court. She says he pled guilty to a lesser charge and a protective order was placed against him.

NewsChannel 12 spoke with the families of both victims. According to them, Kellum is back at school. "He's got two assault and battery charges on two girls in the school," one victim's mother said. "He shouldn't even be at the school." Both families want to see Kellum removed from the school.
