Los Alamos High School student Andres Dow, 18, was recently summoned to Magistrate Court for allegedly harassing and bullying another student, as well as threatening a school employee with bodily harm.
Dow was also immediately suspended from school because of his actions.
According to parents of Dow’s 14-year-old alleged victim, Dow started showing up at the victim’s basketball practice “just to stare at him, which made (the victim) very anxious,” read a statement in the police report.
As time went on, Dow allegedly escalated his harassment, and directly confronted his victim. The victim also said that whenever he would leave the campus for lunch, Dow would be allegedly be waiting for him, and Dow would just continue to stare at him.
According to the police report, the victim tried to move away from Dow, but Dow continued to follow him around the gym no matter where he went.
Things came to a head on another day when Dow allegedly grabbed the victim by the shoulders, pinned him up against a wall and told the victim to keep away from his girlfriend. When the victim attempted to escape, Dow, who is 5-foot-8 and weighs 140 pounds, allegedly blocked him, at one point grabbing him by the arm in an attempt to drag him outside “so they could fight without being at the school.”
