MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police have confirmed they arrested a 39-year-old Armando Briseno-Alonso from Rogers St. Academy for an alleged incident of sexual assault.

A young Milwaukee boy says he was locked in an office at school and sexually assaulted by Briseno-Alonso for years.

Briseno-Alonso is charged with two counts of child enticement and one count of repeated sexual assault of a child.

The criminal complaint says the most recent incident happened last Friday.  The boy and his parents went to police Wednesday after his mother found text messages between her son and Briseno-Alonso.

The complaint says Briseno-Alonso repeatedly had the young boy, who's 11 now, help him put books away in another school room.  That's where he would lock the door and starting touching the boy's "parts".

MPS suspended the teacher as soon as it became aware of the allegations.

Meanwhile, parent's are left wondering.

"That's shocking," Jose Roman, who's 2nd grade son attends Rogers Street Academy.  "They call us to let us know what's going on but they didn't call us about this thing. I'm going to ask him (his son) questions you know, see what he knows.  And if somebody tried to do something to him, and make sure he's okay."

Briseno-Alonso remains behind bars and could face more than 100 years in prison if convicted.
