Alhambra resident allegedly attacks student in an after-school fight

An Alhambra resident allegedly helped his 13-year-old daughter attack another student outside of Garfield Elementary School Monday afternoon, according to a press release from the Alhambra Police Department. 

The victim, also 13, said she was confronted by the father and daughter over a previous dispute. The father allegedly encouraged his daughter to fight, and when she seemed to be losing, he attacked the student and injured a friend. The man threatened a school official who tried to stop the fight and both he and his daughter fled the scene before police arrived. Two students suffered minor injuries. 

Alhambra Police identified and located the suspects Tuesday with the help of Alhambra Unified School District. The names of the victim, student witnesses, and juvenile suspect are not being released due to their age.

The father was arrested and booked for corporal injury to a child and threatening a school official. He was released after posting a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Alhambra Court on Dec. 6. The daughter was arrested for battery and released to a family member.

  1. ABC 7 identifies the father as Treyvone Towns, 37. If the allegations are true and Mr. Towns encouraged his daughter to assault the other child then what was he thinking!? They’re kids! Encouraging children to fight isn’t acceptable, ever. That attitude only encourages bullying.

    Regardless, I expect this is an isolated incident.

Do you have a question you would like to ask Alhambra candidates?

Ask your Alhambra City Council OR your Alhambra Unified School Board Candidates a question ahead of the 2020 elections!
