Police have arrested a high school math teacher for allegedly molesting a student at John F. Kennedy High School in Fremont.
The teacher, David Williams, 66, of Union City, was arrested just before 4 p.m. Friday on suspicion of molesting or annoying a child under the age of 18, according to police.
A parent of a student reported to police that the teacher had touched the student inappropriately, according to police. Fremont police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said Williams is
believed to have molested the student more than once within the past few weeks.
He was cited and released after his arrest, and is expected to appear in court on Nov. 1, she said.
Fremont Unified School District Superintendent Jim Morris said Williams has been a math teacher at Kennedy High School for 10 years. He also taught a college preparatory program called AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination.
He taught students in grades 9 through 12.
Since the incident was reported, additional staff and counselors have been at the school Monday and today "to provide support to students and staff," Morris said.
"Obviously, the safety and protection of kids is our highest priority," he said.
Williams is on leave, but Morris said he cannot be placed on unpaid leave until he has been arraigned.
Bosques said there may be other victims, and anyone with information on the case is asked to call Fremont police at (510) 790-6900.
