MYRTLE BEACH (AP) — A South Carolina high school athlete has been removed from his basketball team following his arrest on a sexual assault charge steaming from an incident on an activity bus.


The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Friday that Shaquawan Franklin McGillis, of Loris, is charged with third-degree assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct. Authorities said the 17-year-old from Green Sea Floyds High School pulled down his pants and then tried to put his hands in the pants of a 15-year-old girl.


Another boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, is also charged. Authorities said the assault occurred last month on a Horry County schools activity bus.


McGill was released on $40,000 bail with the condition that he be monitored by GPS.
