Authorities identify 3 adults accused of fighting at Miami-Dade school
MIAMI – Authorities identified three of the four alleged attackers who officers arrested on Tuesday at Miami Central High School. The adults were accused of fighting with students.
The group fight, which did not involve weapons, prompted administrators to lock down the school with more than 1,500 students and issue a code red.
“My sister went there four days before the incident and explained to the principal — nothing was done,” a woman told Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mindy S. Glazer in court about what preceded the school fight.

Corrections officers were holding a man, who was injured during the fight, without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. David Peak, 22, suffered injuries to his forehead, lips, and knees, so Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel took him to North Shore Hospital after treating him at the school, according to the arrest form.
Peak’s co-defendants — Laquayle Peak, 18, Tranesha Housen, 23, and a third who was not identified — are accused of attacking four Miami Central High School students, three girls and a boy, at the school, at 1781 NW 95th St. , in Miami-Dade’s West Little River neighborhood, according to the arrest form.
The unidentified co-defendant and Peak, 18, were accused of attacking the three girls, according to Peak’s arrest form. School officials said the fight was outside of the school building and before the security check-in area. Teyreaisha Lampley, a Miami Central student, said Tuesday the attackers ripped her shirt and pulled her hair.
“These people came to Central and they really jumped me, like I was so scared,” Teyreaisha said.

Peak, 22, the only man in the group, is facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution.
Peak, 18, is also facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution. Her bond was set at $3,000 with house arrest.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools released a statement on Wednesday afternoon saying, “The incident was immediately addressed by the administration and Miami-Dade Schools Police” and warned that “actions that endanger the wellbeing of students will not be tolerated.”
The charges Housen and the unidentified defendant are facing were not public on Wednesday afternoon. Records show Housen was released from jail while Pake, 22, and Peak, 18, remained behind bars.
