Teacher in court for assault

A 44-YEAR-old Williamsville school teacher who allegedly touched a 16-year-old schoolboy’s private parts in Rio Claro is expected to appear in court on Monday.

The teacher, who police said had 20 years experience, was charged with two counts of indecent assault.

According to police, the teenager came to the Rio Claro Police Station and reported that the teacher on Tuesday assaulted him on the way to school.

It is alleged that around 7.40 a.m. the teacher offered the boy a lift to his school. The boy told police that while headed there the teacher spoke to him about sex. Upon reaching some 150 metres from the school the teacher grabbed the boy’s hand and placed it on his private parts. 

The boy told police he pulled                       his hand away, and the teacher placed his hand on the boy’s private parts.

He then warned the teenager not to tell anyone of the incident, and dropped him off at his school.

The teenager reported the incident to police and Sgt Mohammed and PC Jaikaran conducted enquiries.

A file was submitted to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and instructions were given to charge the teacher.

He is expected to appear before a Rio Claro Magistrate on Monday.
