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.
