DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – A 43 year-old Molina High School wrestling coach is in jail on charges of sexual assault and improper relationship between and educator and student. His bond has been set at $200,000.

Philon Deberry, who goes by Sam, was being investigated by Dallas ISD police for an unrelated incident when a student came forward with new allegations.

A 17 year-old student told police Deberry had been “harassing her, hugging on her” since September of 2012, court documents said.

She told police Deberry made her feel guilty by telling her that if she told anyone, he would lose his wife and kids, the affidavit said.

Court documents say in December of 2012, Deberry lured her into a locker room, then locked the door behind her. The victim said Deberry unbuttoned his shorts. She said, she tried to get away, but Deberry grabbed her by the hair. She tried to yell for help but nobody came, the affidavit said. Deberry then allegedly tried to forced her to perform a sexual act on him. She hit him and was able to get away, court documents stated.

The victim came forward after Deberry was placed on administrative leave, on February 13th, for an unrelated incident.

According to DISD, they discovered Deberry was transporting individual students to doctors’ offices to take the physical exams they need to play sports.

The victim told a school administrator that now that Deberry was gone, it was the first time she felt safe, the affidavit states. She then confessed to the school administrator what had happened in the locker room in December of 2012.

The school administrator contacted police.

The investigation is ongoing. Police are searching for more possible victims.

Molina High School sent the following letter home to parents Thursday:
