The Naval Academy says there's not enough evidence to charge anyone with sexually assaulting a female midshipman, who says she was assaulted during summer training in Norfolk, Virginia.

A spokesman for the Academy says the Naval Criminal Investigative Service investigated the alleged incident. The commanding officer of the ship involved reviewed the findings and decided that there wasn't enough evidence to charge anyone or take the case to military court.

The academy says it won't release any more details of the case.

Another female midshipman reported being sexually assaulted during summer training. That case remains under investigation.
