SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department announced the arrest of a child molestation suspect, who was caught by the victim’s parents. The suspect was arrested for having made several sexual advances toward the student prior to this incident.
The San Jose Police Department identified and arrested 51-year-old Thomas Reeves of San Jose for having sexual relations with a female minor under the age of 15. It is alleged that when Reeves was working as a language tutor, he had manipulated his female student into having sex with him during what was supposed to be a language tutoring session.
Starting “in June 2015, the suspect Reeves was acting as a language tutor to a 15-year-old female in the San Jose area.” It is believed that Reeves had engaged in multiple sexual acts between October 2015 and April 2016 with the same girl.
