Teacher accused of sexual assault of child bonds out of jail

Posted: Updated:

The AISD elementary school teacher charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child is out of jail.

Some neighbors say he should have been left in jail and not given the opportunity to bond out.

Alfredo Andrade-Gaytan was released on a $50,000 bond Wednesday.

Neighbors say his family was packing up belongings in a U-Haul over the weekend.

Thirty-three-year-old Andrade-Gaytan faces five allegations of sexual assault. All by students he once taught.

Some of his neighbors say his behavior was unusual.

"He had this strange look at the kids that were there, especially when the bus was coming. So I was really concerned about that person. My wife and I looked in the databases but we didn't find him," said Pedro Sanchez, neighbor.

Pedro and Luz Sanchez have three young daughters. After a few strange encounters they say they stopped letting them play down the street.

"He stayed watching the girls for a very long time. To me it seemed, like they say, a sixth sense of a mother. I thought how strange that the man stayed watching them," said Luz Sanchez, neighbor.

Neighbors say Andrade-Gaytan would be out working on his yard every day at the exact same time the school bus would be dropping off the kids.

"I was asking my daughters if they had ever seen anything suspicious or if he had ever talked to them or their friends. As I mentioned to you before, the bus drops them off right next to his house. They were like "no," except for waving to them and being friendly," said Andressa De Lima, neighbor.

We're told family of Andrade-Gaytan packed up the house over the Father's Day weekend. It was last Friday that he was arrested after AISD police say he confessed to sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl inside a classroom at Reilly Elementary.

Now four new allegations from students at Walnut Creek Elementary are being investigated. In the meantime, Andrade-Gaytan was released from jail Wednesday on a $50,000 bond.

"Especially in this kind of neighborhood where there are a lot of kids, it's a real danger," said Pedro Sanchez.

"The police are putting trust in a person that is ultimately going to hurt the life of a child," said Luz Sanchez.

To comply with bond conditions, Andrade-Gaytan cannot have contact with the victim nor unsupervised contact with minors.

Andrade-Gaytan has worked at five AISD elementary schools since 2005, others include McBee, Reed, and Lender. District officials continue to meet with parents.
