FT. SILL, Okla. (TNN) - A national online publication called The Intercept is reporting that 22 military members are being accused of sexually assaulting a trainee.

Fort Sill officials spoke about the allegations Thursday afternoon.

The Intercept reported that a military official with direct knowledge of the allegations, who the publication says spoke on the condition of anonymity, told them investigators were looking into alleged assaults on the trainee by 22 military members.
