UPDATE: Details emerge of ex-CCSD coach's lewd acts with 9th-grade student

UPDATE NOV. 21: The arrest report for Juan Alfredo Chavez has revealed new details have been revealed regarding the situation that led to his arrest.

Chavez, who served as Clark High School's boy's Junior Varsity soccer coach, approached a 14-year-old 9th-grade female student before the school's football game on Oct. 20 and told her to follow him. The two exited the school and headed toward the portables between the baseball and football fields.

He asked the female student for a side hug and at that point, he leaned in and tried to kiss the student. The student pulled away. Chavez asked her if she was nervous and she replied, "yes." She then began to walk back toward the school's gym.

Chavez followed her back inside and made no further advances. Several cameras caught the interaction between Chavez and the student and officers felt they had probable cause showing that Chavez inappropriately used his position to further a relationship with the female student.

The student says she's known Chavez for four years, as he served as her brother's soccer coach prior to her arriving at the school.

There were no other reports of Chavez pursuing inappropriate relationships with any other female students on campus.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Clark County School District (CCSD) Police have arrested a former boys junior varsity soccer coach at Ed W. Clark High School and charged 25-year-old Juan Alfredo Chavez with one count of felony lewdness committed by a person over 18 with a child 14 or 15.

The arrest was the result of an incident that allegedly took place on Oct. 20, 2017, at the school and involved a 14-year-old female student. The 14-year-old student said Chaves made several advances to touch and kiss her near the school's baseball field.

Since Chavez was a volunteer and not a CCSD employee, as of Oct. 20, 2017, he is no longer allowed on any CCSD property and has been removed from the approved coaches list.

Chavez had served in a coaching capacity with CCSD since December 2010. He had successfully passed a background check in order to be a coach and have contact with students.
