Two teens charged with kicking, biting teachers

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Kicking, punching and even biting. That’s what one high schooler is accused of doing to a teacher and a security guard.

Albuquerque Public Schools police say his friend stood by and even made threats, too. It’s landed them in some big trouble.

The whole thing started at the Career Enrichment Center near Mountain and Edith.

According to an APS police report, two boys, 15 and 17 years old, got into it with a male teacher, a female teacher and a security guard.

It goes on to say the 17-year-old kicked, punched and even bit them during the chaos Wednesday during school. At one point, an APS officer had to shout he would use mace to break things up.

The teens both later fessed up to drinking booze and smoking weed in the bathroom there. It turns out they go to school next door at Albuquerque High.

“I was talking to my friend Xavier and he was like ‘Bosque got suspended’,” an Albuquerque High junior told KRQE News 13.

A lot of kids are talking about it.

“I was actually friends with Bosque and he was a good kid but he used to smoke weed.”

To hear about that attack, though, came as a surprise.

“I didn’t know that he would hit a teacher,” the junior said.

APS police said the female teacher was also kicked in the back. The other one was slammed up against a wall and bitten on the arm.

“That was pretty strange, kind of weird.”

Both teens won’t be coming back to school for a while as they have been suspended.

As far as charges go, the teens are looking at aggravated battery on school personnel. APS tells KRQE News 13 there are no drug or alcohol charges at this time.

KRQE News 13 stopped by both boys’ homes. We didn’t get answer at one. At the other, the family refused to talk. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
