LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Polytechnic High School athletic assistant was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit says that Jose Rosario Alvarez, 27, had been involved with the girl over the Internet and in person-to-person contact.
The girl attends another school within the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Alvarez was booked for unlawful sex with a minor and is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center on $20,000 bail.
The school district says they have removed Alvarez from contact with students pending further proceedings.
Anyone with information on the case was asked to call detectives at (213) 486-0570.
