Calif. teacher, 4 students arrested in hazing case
FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - June 25, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Southern California high school teacher was arrested on suspicion of directing students to assault at least one other student in a classroom hazing incident, police said Sunday.
Emmanuel Delarosa, 27, along with four other students were arrested Saturday after a student who said he was a victim of the hazing contacted school police, Fontana police Sgt. Robert Morris said.
Investigators alleged that Delarosa, a summer school teacher at A.B. Miller High School, knew about the hazing - and in at least one instance directed some students to carry out the hazing to curb behavior problems in the classroom, Morris said.
He declined to describe the nature of the hazing, citing the ongoing investigation.
At least one student suffered minor injuries, Morris said.
Jail records show that an 18-year-old student arrested in the case faces charges of assault, child cruelty and attempted sodomy. Fernando Manuel Salgado was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
The names of the other three male students were not released because they are minors. Police said they were arrested for investigation of assault and child endangerment.
Delarosa was booked for investigation of child endangerment and released on bail.
A phone number listed for his home in Rialto was no longer valid.
