CORPUS CHRISTI -- The mother of a 14-year-old girl who claims she was sexually assaulted at Moody High School Monday morning tells 6 News that her daughter is now getting threatening text messages.
An EMS driver rushed out to the school after a girl claimed a boy she didn't know sexually assaulted her.
The girl's mother, Christina Benavides, said, "Somehow, someway he came from behind her, dragged her out of the school and she didn't want to go and she kept asking him 'Where are we going, what are we doing?' And, he would tell her 'You yell or scream and I'm going to hit you.'"
Benavides says the boy took her daughter to the baseball field, removed her clothes and was just about to rape her when school police saw what was going on and stopped it.
Both kids ran off.
Benavides said, "I don't understand why he just didn't stop, but he had the audacity and the guts to go do it in daylight."
On top of that, her daughter is getting text messages from other students at the school telling her to go kill herself.
Benavides is beside herself over all this, but says one good thing came out of the nasty texts.
Whoever sent them, also identified the boy.
So now, she wants the school to punish him - something she would like to do as well.
Benavides said, "I would love to go, and like they say, cut him, cut his thing off, teach him a lesson, show him just because you got that between your legs doesn't make you a man."
Benavides says she'll step aside instead and let justice get its revenge.
For now, what she can do is transfer her daughter to another school where she feels safe.
When we contacted CCISD about the incident, district officials said they can't comment about an ongoing investigation.
The school district's police chief did tell us they are investigating the case, but don't have a suspect.
