RICHMOND – Youth tennis coach Normandie S. Burgos traveled to the tennis courts adjacent to the Richmond Plunge public swimming pool on Monday, where detectives from the domestic and sexual violence unit of the Richmond Police Department were waiting to arrest him.
Burgos, 53, a local resident, became the subject of his latest child molestation investigation in February, after Richmond detectives received information about alleged sexual assaults involving a 16-year-old boy. Burgos is also suspected of molesting another boy.
The sexual molestation involving the 16-year-old allegedly occurred at Burgos’s home multiple times over a period of two years, starting when the boy was 14 years old, who ostensibly was with Burgos for private tennis lessons.
Police detectives arrested Burgos at 10:15 a.m. on July 10 at one of the tennis courts located outside at 1 East Richmond Avenue, where the suspect was expecting to give a tennis lesson.
Burgos is charged with oral copulation with a person under age 16, and lewd actions with a person under 14. He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility, where bail for his release was set at $1.5 million.
During their investigation, Richmond detectives learned that Burgos was previously arrested and accused of child molestation in Mill Valley in 2006 and 2010, where Burgos formerly taught high school. Burgos lost his job as a gym teacher and tennis coach, but he was never convicted.
Richmond police said Burgos also previously faced charges involving sexual misconduct with another juvenile in Richmond, but again Burgos was never convicted.
Anyone with may have experienced inappropriate conduct with Burgos is asked to call the Richmond police at 510-620-6668.
