Police are looking into allegations that a St. Paul Catholic school girl was bullied into performing oral sex on a male student, the Pioneer Press reports.

According to a search warrant affidavit filed in Ramsey County District Court, the girl attends St. Thomas More Catholic School and reported she had been bullied by a male student and his friends since the beginning of the school year.

The boy told her "they would be nice to her if she performed oral sex on him," the court document stated. She complied.

What she didn't know was that the boy used an iPhone to take a photo of the girl during the act and sent it to a classmate. The cell phone was seized by police.

The boy told investigators the sexual encounter was consensual. He has not been charged.

The document made public Thursday did not reveal the names or ages of the students. It's also unclear when and where the incident took place.

St. Thomas More Catholic School serves students from Pre-K through 8th grade.
