Fontana Police Arrest Teacher, 4 Others In Hazing Incident

FONTANA – A high school teacher, adult student and three minor students were arrested on Saturday on a hazing investigation.  The teacher, Emmanuel De La Rosa, apparently knew that students had assaulted another student at A.B. Miller High School, police said. At one point, according to investigation reports, the teacher may have authorized the hazing to correct a student’s behavior in a summer school class.

Fernando Manuel Salgado, 18, was also arrested on charges of assault, child cruelty and attempted sodomy, according to jail records. Salgado, being held on $100,000 bail, is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. He was being held at the West Valley Detention Center in nearby Rancho Cucamonga.  Police also arrested three unidentified minors, each students in the class, on suspicion of assault and child endangerment.

De La Rosa, who was released on bail early Sunday morning, according to records, teaches various courses that include bricklaying and other related technical classes.

One student had suffered minor injuries according to police. The incident appears to be confined to one classroom and involved only students in that class.

On Monday morning, police were still investigating.  Police said school officials became aware of the incident after the beginning of summer classes, which started on May 31. According to a release, school district police turned the case over to Fontana Police Department investigators on Friday.

Investigators talked to nearly every student in the class, say police, before making arrests on Saturday. The case started when the assaulted student reported the crime to school police on Friday.
