A group of parents in a northwest-side neighborhood are irate after they say a woman claimed to be a Bexar County Sheriff's deputy and detained six girls as they walked to a Halloween party Friday night.
"She said she was armed and we were really scared because we weren't doing anything wrong. We thought 'is she going to shoot us?'" said 12-year-old Trinity, whose family was hosting the party.
The girls were walking back from a neighbor's house in the 6300 block of Club Oaks Drive around 7:30 p.m. when the woman got out of her car and had them sit on their hands on the sidewalk.
"When I looked into the shadows, she was pulling out a gun," said 13-year-old Celeste.
Several parents walked out of the party three doors down when the girls had not returned, and found them sitting in a row, crying.
The woman had placed a gun on the trunk of her car and informed the parents SAPD officers were on their way.
SAPD tells KENS 5 they received a call around 7:45 p.m. from a woman claiming to be armed who was detaining six female minors for "suspicious behavior."
Several parents say they asked the woman for identification and she refused, before eventually referring to herself as "Deputy Buzz."
The woman released the girls back to their parents before police arrived.
SAPD did not file an incident report or charges.
An official from the Bexar County Sheriff's Office says the department does not have a Deputy Buzz on staff.
As of Tuesday night, the woman had still not been identified.
Some of the parents plan to file a complaint, and one has contacted a lawyer.
