A South Florida male high school student has been arrested for allegedly assaulting and raping a teacher.
Victor Marshall Nash, 18, faces charges of attempted felony, sexual battery, robbery, and grand theft of a vehicle.
The arrest affidavit states that two hours after the end of the school day for South Dade Senior High School, Nash grabbed the female victim, and put his arms around her as she began to cry and attempted to push away.
Nash then reportedly body-slammed the victim to the ground, choked her until she lost consciousness, and ultimately raped her, according to NBC Miami.
Nash allegedly put the condom he used in her purse.
The victim’s car was stolen by Nash and he was found five hours later driving the vehicle, reports The Daily Mail.
The teachers union released the following statement:
“We are shocked and dismayed by the event reported at South Dade Senior High. Our schools should be a place of safety and serenity, not only for students, but the adults who work there as well.”
Parents of students were informed about the rape in a message from the school’s principal.
"Today, I started hearing kids talk about the buddy system when going to the bathroom," one student said. "We shouldn't have to feel that way in school."
Victor Marshall, Sr., Nash’s father, who was reportedly convicted of sexual battery in 2001, spoke out about whether his past had impacted his son.
"As far as I know, he didn't even know it,” Marshall Sr. said to WSVN.
"It's just upsetting. I never wanted him to go through the things I went through,” Marshall Sr. continued.
Nash’s mother, who has asked to remain unidentified, released a statement asking for privacy.
"Our thoughts and prayers goes out to the victim and her family," she said. "Although the road to resolution is uncertain at this time, we ask that the media respect our privacy and allow our families to get through and heal in this difficult period in our lives."
Nash has confessed to the crimes and is being held on a $62,500 bond.
