School Volunteer, 23, Accused Of Oral Copulation With Boy, 16

AZUSA (CBS) —  A 23-year-old volunteer at Gladstone High School in Azusa was charged Thursday with four felony sex-related counts including  oral copulation with a 16-year-old student, police said.

Eric Duong, of West Covina, who works or volunteers at four high schools in Los Angeles and Orange counties is a part-time employee with the El Modena High School in Orange and Tustin High School. He also is a volunteer at West Covina High School, said Lt. Steve Hunt of the Azusa Police Department.

Duong works or volunteers for each school as an extracurricular activities instructor.

Azusa police were contacted by the parents of a 16-year-old male who said he was possibly involved in an inappropriate relationship with Duong. Yesterday, it was reported the alleged victim in the case was female.

But Thursday police clarified that the alleged victim was male and supposedly had oral sex with Duong between Feb. 1 and April 1.

Police are concerned there are additional victims in the case. Anyone with information was asked to call Azusa police detective Jerry Jarrett at (626) 812-3200.

Duong was arrested on suspicion of felony sex charges and is being held on $50,000 bail.

He is scheduled to be arraigned April 20 in Pomona Superior Court.
