Miami Sunset Senior High School student Jordan Sotomayor was arrested on Wednesday after a disturbing incident involving one of his teachers.
The charge against Sotomayor is aggravated stalking, reports Miami ABC affiliate WPLG.
Police say Sotomayor, 18, had been aggressively pursuing the teacher for the last year.
Sotomayor confessed to entering the intensive reading and math teacher’s classroom “on two occasions and leaving sexually inclined messages” on her whiteboard, an arrest report obtained by local Fox affiliate WSVN explains.
Closed-circuit cameras captured him entering the classroom as well, police say.
The messages were scary. Investigators say they described in graphic, obscenity-laden detail what Sotomayor hoped to do to the teacher.
Students told WSVN about one of the incidents and the teacher’s reaction.
“First period, when the teacher came into class, when we walked in, it was everything written on the headboard,” Miami Sunset student Rosie Suarez told the station.
“She was nervous and shocked,” another student added.
Students told WPLG that they observed Sotomayor openly stalking the teacher for the entire school year. He had done the same basic thing with female students, they said.
Local press is not releasing the teacher’s name.
It has been a terrible, terrible month for Miami Sunset Senior High. Just last week, students flooded social media with imagery showing sickening conditions inside the school. The images showed, among other things, cockroaches on the walls, roaches on food and moldy fruit punch, notes the Daily Mail.
Sotomayor’s arrest is reminiscent of a November incident when Adam Sandler, the infamous man who dresses up in an Elmo costume and hounds tourists and shopkeepers along Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and in New York City’s Times Square, was arrested on several charges including making a criminal threat, disturbing the peace and public nuisance.

Sandler, 50, languished in a Bay Area jail because he couldn’t afford bail of $150,000. His Elmo suit was held as evidence.
