MANTUA, Ohio -- The Crestwood School District has canceled all future high school football games indefinitely because of a pending criminal investigation, the district and Mantua Police Department said in separate statements on Friday.

"The Crestwood Local School District has suspended all High School football operations effective immediately until such time as the Superintendent announces otherwise. No further comment shall be made at this time due to state and federal privacy laws. Any and all updates regarding this matter will be issued by the Superintendent only," Superintendent David Toth said.

Mantua police say they were contacted by the school regarding an incident that was brought to their attention. The department is investigating allegations to determine if a crime took place.

Superintendent Toth told FOX 8's Kevin Freeman that the district just found out about the incident today.

Neither the school, nor Mantua police elaborated about the alleged incident, when it happened, or who it affected.

The Crestwood High School football team was scheduled to play an away game at Mogadore.  That game has been canceled.
