More allegations reported against AISD teacher

Posted: Updated:

There are new allegations against an Austin teacher who was arrested for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old student inside his classroom.

Since the arrest of Alfredo Andrade-Gaytan last week, AISD police say four more children have come forward claiming they were also assaulted.

Parents are upset and frustrated.

Four new allegations from students at Walnut Creek Elementary are being investigated by AISD police. Last Friday, 33-year-old Alfredo Andrade-Gaytan was arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child. AISD police say last Wednesday, Andrade-Gaytan sent his students to recess and kept a six-year-old girl inside his classroom so he could sexually assault her.

Andrade-Gaytan has been with the district since 2005. From 2005 to 2008 he was a teacher's assistant at McBee Elementary. From 2008 to 2009 he worked at Reed elementary as a teacher's assistant.

From 2009 to 2012 Andrade-Gaytan taught kindergarten at Lender Elementary and up until last week, he was working as a summer school teacher at Reilly and a third grade teacher at Walnut Creek Elementary School.

Joanne Perez, a Walnut Creek Elementary School Parent, said, "Upset. Upset with the district. They didn't notify us...I barely received a letter yesterday, barely yesterday, that this happened and that there was going to be a meeting."

Christian Evoy, the AISD Assistant Police Chief, said, "It's gonna be a quite extensive investigation because he has been with the district for such a long time and he has been at different schools, so we are going to follow up."

Andrade-Gytan is being held in the Travis County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

Authorities are asking parents to talk to their children that attended any of those campuses we previously mentioned.

We will let you know if any other charges are filed against him.
