Another Robstown security officer has been suspended amid another allegation of abusing a student.
Security guard Aaron Enrriquez was suspended Monday morning, pending an investigation of an incident that reportedly occurred Friday afternoon at Robstown High School, police said.
Robstown Police Chief Johnny Brown said the incident began in the 300 wing of the high school and shifted to a nearby restroom.
The 17-year-old high school boy and his parents told Robstown police Saturday that Enrriquez put the boy in a headlock and attempted to press his head against the wall for no apparent reason, Brown said.
The boy said he pushed away from the headlock and went into the men's restroom. He said Enrriquez followed him into the restroom and put him in a headlock again while putting a handcuff on one of his wrists.
The boy said Enrriquez attempted to handcuff his other wrist, but later released him.
Brown said police are investigating the report as an official oppression case since Enrriquez allegedly misused his position as a security guard. The crime is a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
Brown said that if Enrriquez did place that boy in a headlock, his actions would have been "over the line."
Brown said Monday that police had not yet determined what sparked the alleged confrontation. He said detectives would talk with witnesses and hopefully wrap up the investigation by the end of this week.
Enrriquez has a trial pending in Robstown Municipal Court on a charge of assault by contact in connection to another alleged assault.
A camerawoman for KZTV filed charges in early October after a confrontation with Enrriquez in which Enrriquez allegedly pushed the woman's camera while the news station was investigating an alleged strip search.
Security officer Irma Hernandez said she witnessed the search of a 12-year-old Seale Junior High School girl in the teacher's lounge at the junior high school in late September.
Newly hired police officer Jessica Cantu denied to school officials that she conducted the strip search. But superintendent Roberto Garcia said an investigation found that Cantu had the girl remove her pants and blouse while investigating a report of the girl possessing matches.
Cantu was suspended with pay shortly after the late-September incident for allegedly strip-searching the girl and terminated on Oct. 8.
Garcia said Cantu had the authority to conduct searches of students, but Garcia said he felt the search of the girl was over-intrusive since it was prompted by a search for matches, not drugs or weapons.
