MIAMI (WSVN) - A school security officer at Miami Northwestern Senior High School is now facing legal consequences after being arrested for alleged inappropriate conduct involving students.
The incident, which occurred on Monday, was captured on the school’s surveillance camera and has raised significant concerns within the school community.
According to the arrest affidavit, one victim reported that Diajion Jones “slapped her on the buttocks area” while in the hallway, which was captured on the school’s surveillance camera, “and continued to walk by [the victim].”
On the same day, police said, another victim said Jones offered her access to a room to skip class.
The arrest affidavit states, “[The second victim] stated [the defendant] opened the door of the room, put his hand on her buttocks area and guided her in as he followed closely behind her.”
Police said the suspect, 22, allegedly asked for hugs and made explicit comments.
Despite the student’s refusals, Jones persisted with inappropriate remarks, inquiries about her age and other intimate questions.
The arrest affidavit states the second victim told him, “No, I don’t get down like that.”
Law enforcement responded promptly to the incident on Tuesday, arresting Jones at Miami Northwestern Senior High.
Late Wednesday morning, he stood before Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mindy S. Glazer.
“You got arrested for two counts of offenses against students by authority figures and one count of battery,” said Glazer.
Glazer ordered Jones to stay away from the victims and the school.
The school administration is fully cooperating with law enforcement, ensuring a thorough investigation into the alleged misconduct.
