If you think that one of your classmates has plagiarized something, you should immediately contact your professor and let them know what has happened. (E-mail would be best for this!) Include a link to the article and a give a description of your evidence. It would also be a good idea to let your content expert know so they can remove the plagiarized content and get the edits removed from the page's history. Wikipedia has an automated function (called "bots" on Wikipedia) that scans for copyright violations, so the content expert may already know about the plagiarism - but it's always good to make sure that they're aware.
