School Teacher Assaults Six Elementary School Kids
An elementary school teacher in East Los Angeles has been charged with sexually assaulting six female students, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced this week.
Martin Reyes Jr., 29, a first-grade teacher at Sunrise Elementary School, allegedly sexually abused six girls in his class during recess inside a classroom, investigators said.
Authorities began an investigation after a student reported on May 22 to law enforcement that Reyes had allegedly sexually abused her.
The LAPD declined to disclose the name of the school in Los Angeles County Reyes teaches at, citing safety reasons.
Reyes’ bail was set at one million dollars ($1,000,000).
Detectives are asking anyone who may be a victim or has additional information to contact Juvenile Division Detective Morales at (213) 486-0598.
