Security guard accused of assaulting teacher at school

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A security officer working at a Las Cruces middle school has been arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a teacher in her classroom.

Police say 59-year-old Tom M. Trujillo was arrested Monday on suspicion of kidnapping, criminal sexual penetration, bribery of a witness and criminal sexual contact in the Sept. 26 incident.

Trujillo remained jailed Tuesday. Online court records don't indicate whether he has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
