Two students arrested at school for assault and terroristic threat

- Katy ISD confirms that two students from McDonald Junior High School were arrested at school Tuesday.

One student was charged with assault of a public servant, the other for an alleged terroristic threat against a school district employee.

FOX 26 spoke with the mother of the student charged with assault.

She says her son had taken video of a student being beaten up as part of a gang initiation at the school.

When a teacher discovered the video, Kennie Solano says the teacher snatched the phone away from him.

Then her son allegedly got into a physical altercation trying to get his phone back.

Solano said her son already served a 3-day suspension for taking video of the bathroom brawl.

Katy ISD has not given any more details about the student arrested for terroristic threat, but released the following statement:

In connection with an ongoing investigation regarding an alleged gang-related incident that occurred on September 21, two McDonald Junior High students were arrested on campus this morning. One arrest was in relation to an alleged physical altercation between a student and teacher that took place on Monday, September 21, 2015 following that incident at approximately 10 a.m. The teacher filed charges against that student for assault on a public servant.

The other student mentioned was arrested today for an alleged terroristic threat against a school district employee which was made on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.

A Katy ISD Police Department investigation concerning both of these arrests is still ongoing at this time.
