BRAWLEY, Calif. – Brawley police continue their investigation into the alleged complaint of a student being videotaped while getting dressed in a locker room at the Brawley Union High School District campus.
“As a district we take all matters very seriously and we conduct thorough investigation in order to insure a safe and secure environment for all of our students,” Brawley Union High School District Superintendent Dr. Hasmik Danielian said.
Police say there’s one suspect and he’s 17 years old and the investigation continues.
According to police the incident happened in February.
The victim spoke in front of the school board recently pleading that the student involved be transferred to another school.
“I cannot divulge information about the disciplinary action that we take on students or any student information because we have an obligation to protect their right to privacy,” Danielian said.
Other agencies were involved in the investigation to help in getting technology based evidence.
Danielian says the victim is getting counseling and the school is taking a proactive role in preventing future situations of this nature from happening.
“We have an obligation to all of our students to make sure and especially in this case, the young lady to receive counseling and anything we can do in order to help her,” Danielian said.
Police have forwarded the case to the district attorney’s office.
