(WJLA) - A pair of employees at a District of Columbia public pool have been disciplined as the investigation into sexual assault allegations at the facility go on, sources say.

Sources tell ABC7 News that an employee at the Wilson Aquatic Center has been fired and another has been suspended while authorities look into accusations that multiple girls were assaulted inside the pool facility.

Law enforcement sources said last week that "multiple young girls" are stepping forward to say that they had been sexually abused by two young men at the pool after hours.

The accusations came about a week after a woman says she was attacked and sexually assaulted in the locker room of the pool as well. It's not known if the incidents are related.
