Former teacher arrested over ongoing sexual abuse of student

A former teacher has been arrested after a student was allegedly sexually abused at a high school in Sydney’s south west.

In April 2019, detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad commenced an investigation following reports a 14-year-old boy had been groomed and sexually assaulted by a man known to him.

Following extensive investigations, detectives arrested a 26-year-old man at Campbelltown Police Station just before 11am today (Friday 14 June 2019), where he is assisting police with their inquiries.

The man’s employment as a teacher has since been terminated.

Investigations are continuing.
