(CNN) β€” US Customs and Border Protection is investigating allegations that border agents mistreated migrant children held in Arizona, allegations that include sexual assault and retaliation for challenging conditions in border stations.

The allegations were first reported by NBC News. The accounts were included in documents that case managers for the Department of Health and Human Services prepared between April 10 and June 12.

The article goes on to state the following:

US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement Wednesday that the new allegations in Arizona “do not align with common practice at our facilities and will be fully investigated.”

“A 15-year-old girl from Honduras described a large, bearded officer putting his hands inside her bra, pulling down her underwear and groping her as part of what was meant to be a routine pat-down in front of other immigrants and officers,” NBC reports. “A 17-year-old boy from Honduras said officers would scold detained children when they would get close to a window, and would sometimes call them ‘puto,’ an offensive term in Spanish, while they were giving orders.”
