MONTGOMERY, TX, DATE – A serious assault on a 14-year-old autistic student at Lake Creek High School has prompted concern and frustration from the victim’s family.
According to the victim’s parent, the school did not call an ambulance following the assault, resulting in the need for the family to transport the victim to the emergency room themselves. The student suffered severe injuries, including staples in his head, a hematoma on the back of his head, a ruptured eardrum, and a concussion.
The family has expressed dissatisfaction with the response from the school police, claiming a lack of interest in assisting them in a timely manner and a failure to provide a case number. They also report that the assailant, a 16-year-old student, was not arrested.
Adding to the family’s distress, the owner of a local MMA gym, where the victim trains, contacted the family late at night to report that the alleged assailant had shown up to fight the victim.
Efforts to report the incident to the Montgomery County Sheriff were met with the assertion that it was not within their jurisdiction.
The incident raises serious questions about the handling of the situation by the school, local law enforcement, and other authorities. Further investigation is required to determine the appropriate actions and responsibilities in this troubling case.
The school district has not yet issued a public statement regarding the incident.
