A school police officer accused of raping a drunk 16-year-old was also accused of raping his 17-year-old girlfriend after prosecutors realized she was 15 when she became pregnant with his baby.
Elías Huizar, 39, was arrested after his girlfriend reported him for the attack on her friend who was spending the night at his home in West Richland, Washington.
It has now emerged that the former Yakima police officer filed for a protective order against his girlfriend when she was 13 and told her friends they had been sleeping together.
The girlfriend had gone to sleep in a spare room with her 16-year-old friend, who was feeling unwell after the three spent the night drinking at the house on Feb. 3, according to court documents.
She then woke up to find Huizar attacking her drunk friend before leaving the room “as if nothing had happened” when she confronted him.
Elías Huizar, 39, served with the Yakima Police Department from 2014 to 2022.
He was assigned as a school resource officer at Washington High School in Yakima.
He refused to enter West Richland. Police officers arrived at his home, leading to a two-hour standoff until the Tri-Cities SWAT team forced their way in and found him “doing laundry.”
Huizar allegedly pursued the couple as they fled in their truck with the nine-month-old baby, only stopping when the girls arrived in Benton City and stopped next to a Benton County sheriff’s deputy.

Huizar served with the police department from 2014 to 2022 and was assigned as a school resource officer at Washington High School in Yakima.
He Herald of the three cities reported that Huizar obtained a protective order against his now-girlfriend in 2019 after she told her friends they were in a relationship and the friends reported him to the school principal.
The girl denied this and claimed that her account had been hacked when social media posts about the alleged relationship were revealed.
‘A criminal investigation was initiated by the Attorney General’s Office and the case was found to be unfounded,’ Huizar wrote in his request for a protective order.
“(She) was then expelled from school.”
The petition claimed that the girl had contacted Huizar’s then-wife, downloaded photos from the couple’s Facebook pages and taken “numerous” surreptitious photographs of Huizar.
Yakima County Judge Gayle Harthcock approved the protective order that prevented the girl from coming within 500 feet of him or his family for a year.
Huizar and his wife divorced in 2020, and the girl claims in court documents that Huizar contacted her in 2022 when she was 15 years old and they began a relationship.
Huizar received his badge in December 2014 from Yakima Police Chief Dominic Rizzi.
The school suffered a fatal shooting in August 2021 when a 13-year-old boy shot and killed another
It is unclear where Huizar has been working since leaving the department
The former officer still features prominently on the police department’s Facebook page.
The home in West Richland where the abuse allegedly took place
Their son was born in April of last year and the couple began living together in the West Richland home when she was 17.
Huizar has been charged with second-degree rape, providing alcohol to minors and third-degree rape for his relationship with the 17-year-old.
His bail was set at $200,000, but he has since been released from jail on the condition that he not contact any of the teens or consume alcohol.
He is due to appear in court again on February 15.
