A contracted custodian at Roxbury High School has been arrested and charged with stalking and harassing a high school student.
Roxbury Police Chief James Simonetti said in a statement issued Thursday that Jose Alfaro, a previous employee of Aramark, was employed as a janitor, working at the Roxbury High School, where Aramark is subcontracted to provide janitorial services.
On Nov. 29, police said a female juvenile student reported to her teacher that she was uncomfortable with Alfaro’s behavior.
The female said that he approached her and requested to take her picture.
The juvenile female told the teacher that this made her extremely uncomfortable and said she told Alfaro not to take her picture.
She stated she believed he took the photo anyway.
The school’s investigation revealed that Alfaro did in fact take the juvenile’s photo against her will.I don't know about this one . I guess maybe because I often find myself seeing strangers that remind me of other people I can see how this might be innocent . But on the other hand it should be common sense not to take pictures ,and stare at high school girls like a pervy janitor .She further stated that Alfaro approached her approximately three weeks prior to the incident and told her she reminded him of his niece.
The juvenile stated during this time period that she often noticed Alfaro watching her during lunch, which was confirmed by her friends.
After the incident was reported, school officials conducted an investigation, independent of the police, and Alfaro was terminated from his job with Aramark.
On April 30, police said a concerned citizen notified the Roxbury Police Department of the incident involving Alfaro.
A police investigation was initiated, and Alfaro was arrested on May 23, and charged with harassment, a disorderly persons offense, and stalking, a crime of the fourth degree.
