MANTUA, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio school district has canceled a second high school football game while police determine whether a crime was committed during an unspecified incident.

The Ravenna Record-Courier reports Crestwood schools superintendent David Toth announced Tuesday that Crestwood High will not play its homecoming game Friday in Mantua (MAN'-tew-wuh). Toth last Friday suspended "football operations" indefinitely and announced an away game that night would be canceled.

Neither police nor the school district has discussed what's being investigated. Toth has cited privacy laws in explaining why the district hasn't discussed the incident.

Mantua Police Chief Harry Buchert said the investigation is in its preliminary stages and is being mostly handled by the school district.

Toth said a decision on the resumption of football would be made after the investigation is completed.
