CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - A domestic incident has resulted in the arrest of a Chesapeake assistant principal, according to police.
Officer Leo Kosinski with the Chesapeake Police Department told WAVY.com officers responded to the 600 block of Pond Lane in reference to an assault.
After an investigation, officers arrested Bryan Carter, an assistant principal at Indian River High School. He has been charged with abduction, burglary, attempted robbery and assault and battery.
"I just heard about it in the hall. I was just leaving third block and I was totally shocked. I was baffled about it," says Indian River senior Taylor Langevin. "He's actually a pretty nice, decent guy. He'll do pretty much whatever he pretty much can to help you out."
Students say when the morning bell rang, Tuesday, the talk began.
"I heard that he was in jail and something about robbery or something. I didn't know. I thought it was a lie," says Kyle Louder, a senior at Indian River.
"If he's guilty, I don't think he should be a principal, an assistant principal, either," says Mark Thompson whose son graduated from Indian River in 2005.
A Chesapeake Sheriff Deputy says Carter remains in jail on no bond. His next court date is Oct. 15.
School administrators will not comment on Carter's job status saying only they cannot comment on personnel matters. As for students, they say they're a bit thrown off by the violent charges against a man many consider a mentor.
"You would never think of somebody that you're supposed to look up to would ever do anything like that," says Langevin.
Police have not released further details surrounding the incident. It is unknown at this time what the relationship is between Carter and the female victim.
