St. Paul police are investigating a possible sex crime at St. Thomas More Catholic School.

The school has students ages K-8.

An affidavit filed in Ramsey County says a female student claims she was bullied into performing a sex act and that the suspect took a picture of it.

According to a spokesperson for the St. Paul Police Department they've seen more criminal cases that may involve bullying in recent years.

"Bullying is a lot more technical these days.  It's a lot more savvy, and bullying can take on a lot of different forms," says Howie Padilla with the St. Paul Police Department.

No charges have been filed.  The Ramsey County Attorney's Office expects to get the case next week.
