La Puente California. Two of the three California students who said they were hazed and sexually assaulted at an intiation ritual into a high school soccer team spoke about the terrible ordeal they went through with Dr. Drew Pinsky on Monday.

The 14 old boy identified as Billy said his teammates placed a stick up his behind after they lifted him up. Billy said the attackers were his high school soccer teammates. Billy and a 15 year old boy named John told Pinsky the alleged incidents happened at the end of the 2011 school year at La Puente High School.

Billy said he was cornered by 10 of his teammates who told him he could get out easy or get out the hard way of the hazing ritual.

Billy said to Pinsky he tried to run away and fight back but was overpowered by his teammates but his body was penetrated by a pole.

John told Pinsky the soccer coach was aware of the abuse because his office is near where the attack happened but ignored their pleas for help.

Sergeant Dan Scott of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the soccer coach who was not named is being investigated for possible involvement.

Sheriff's officials were told of the hazing incident two weeks ago when the mother of the victims told the school authorites her son was attacked by his soccer teammates.

Scott said four persons were summoned and could face charges pending a review by the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. Three of the four accused students are minors. Recently one of the accused just turned 18 years of age.

Brian Claypool who is the lawyer for the defending the alleged victims said on Monday he has not seen the medical records of the alleged victims but has the stories from his clients are credible and consistent.

John said he escaped the worst of the hazing by running away from his attackers but the effects of the incident still haunts him and he does not want to return to his high school.
