Two weeks after a Sept. 26 verbal altercation among four to 15 students in Oppenheimer Academic Center, college officials and district police still have not released details on the participants or nature of the incident.

The investigation is still ongoing, Dr. Robert Vela, vice president of student affairs and interim vice president of academic affairs, said Wednesday. Campus police have not released a copy of the report.

Vela said he would follow up with Alamo College Police Department deputy Chief Joe Curiel.

“They’ve asked us to wait until they’re finished,” Vela said. “We need to begin our investigation on the code of conduct.”

He said Sept. 27 that two students faced interim disciplinary action and more individuals could face action pending the outcome of the investigation.

About 10 police officers; Vela; Manual Flores, student conduct officer; and Emma Mendiola, dean of student affairs, responded to the altercation. Police blocked the entrances to the first floor of Oppenheimer while officials interviewed participants.
