Socorro - A teacher in the Socorro Independent School District is under arrest on charges of injury to a child.

The district confirms that a teacher from Salvador H. Sanchez Middle School had been arrested Monday afternoon by district police.

Jail records show Robert Brito, 53, had been booked by SISD police.

Parents told NewsChannel 9 Brito was a teacher and coach at Salvador H. Middle School.

We also found him listed as a coach on the school Web site.

The Socorro District would not confirm the teacher's identity because of policy, it did tell us the alleged incident happened last week between a teacher and a student at school.

After the allegations surfaced, the teacher was placed on paid leave.

Shortly after that, the teacher resigned and is no longer employed with the district.

Hello Armado,

I'm not sure what you found unprofessional, but there are certain facts we can't release because of litigation issues.
We will release more details in the near future.
We report facts - doing otherwise would be unprofessional.
Nothing here was factually incorrect.
