TRENTON — On Tuesday, Trenton police arrested several family members of a boy who was struck and killed while waiting on a school bus in September.


Trenton Police Capt. Kevin Mayberry said 12-year-old Jhoel Noria was unsupervised when was struck by an SUV while waiting on a school bus back in September. Mayberry said because the child was a special-needs child and the family should have known he required supervision, the police department, after its initial investigation, decided to file charges against his mother Noemi Isobel Noria, 40, for injury to a child for failing to supervise the child.


As a result of those charges, Mayberry said, three other children were removed from the home. Those children then, Mayberry said, made outcries about alleged sexual abuse going on in the home.


Mayberry said forensic interviews were done with the children and those allegations were repeated. At that time, Mayberry said, based on the information contained in those interviews, he sought warrants for Pedro Noria, 28, and Nelson Rodriguez, 19, who the children said had abused them. Mayberry said the mother was arrested at around noon Tuesday during a traffic stop on the charge of injury to a child.


Pedro Noria and Rodriguez were arrested at the home at around 3 p.m. Mayberry said the two did refuse to leave the house for a period of about 15 minutes.


He said both Pedro Noria and Rodriguez face charges of continuous sexual assault of a child. He said the charge of continuous sexual assault was used because the children said the abuse had been ongoing for several years.


Mayberry said the investigation "has taken a while to get this far. But it finally paid off."


Noemi Noria is being held in the Fannin County Jail on a $20,000 bond. Pedro Noria is being held there on a $50,000 bond and Rodriguez is being held on a $20,000 bond. Jail staff said the three were still in the booking process Wednesday and are not currently represented by counsel.
