Two aggressors and three victims were involved in a Sept. 26 verbal altercation at Oppenheimer Academic Center, Dr. Robert Vela, vice president of academic and student success, confirmed Oct. 25.
Ultimately, one aggressor faced probation and the other was suspended, Vela said.
“It just seemed bigger than it was because it was a mob of people,” he said.
The Ranger reported Sept. 26 that four to 15 students were involved in the incident on the first floor of the building that required the attention of about 10 Alamo College police officers, including Chief Don Adams.
Vela said the student who was suspended was already on probation for threatening a student a few days before the altercation.
“It wasn’t just a one-time thing,” he said.
Vela would not specify details on the altercation, and The Ranger has not yet received a copy of the police report.
