FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A Cumberland County man is accused of trespassing on a high school campus and assaulting a student on Tuesday.

Deputies say Anthony Gonzales, 18, of 7092 Pantego Drive in Fayetteville, sought out a 16-year-old student at 71st High School.

Gonzales does not attend the school and was not supposed to be on the campus when the assault occurred, authorities said.

Deputies said Gonzales refused to cooperate with them and became threatening. Law enforcement used a taser on him shortly before his arrest around 1 p.m.

Gonzales is charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, trespassing and having a weapon on a school campus.

He was released on bond from the Cumberland County Detention Center Tuesday afternoon.
