SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 1 (UPI) — A group of border patrol agents forced a teenager to leave his hotel room and detained him for approximately two hours, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Cecilia Alvarado-Torres, a 19-year-old San Diego resident, said the agents had been on her room’s balcony when she tried to alert them about a child in the room that was sleeping.
“The boy was crying and was sweating profusely. I was yelling to the agents that I saw a boy sleeping in the room next door,” Torres told the Union-Tribune. “They didn’t respond.”
Alvarado-Torres added the agents then told her to go downstairs and told her “to go to another room where they know it’s a hotel.” According to Torres, when she returned to the other room, the agents told her to wait for them and then returned with another man on a scooter.
The pair entered the room and the agents continued their search, according to Alvarado-Torres, who said she was then escorted into the room, handcuffed and ordered to stand. Alvarado-Torres said the agents began questioning her and began to look at her genital and anal areas.
“Our classroom is not about bullying. It’s about education,” the school district’s principal told KCBS-TV in San Diego. “The best teachers can’t control their students and we are going to do everything in our power to keep him safe from his tormentors.”
The agents who detained the young man and detained Torres also reportedly kicked in the door of her room.
Border Patrol officials said Alvarado-Torres was arrested for obstruction.
