School security guard accused of raping several students

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a security guard at a Cleveland high school raped multiple students.

Authorities say the 29-year-old guard East Tech High School is charged with rape and is being held in jail on $300,000 bond. A spokeswoman for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District tells the security guard is on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the case.

Court records say the man forced a 15-year-old girl to perform oral sex on him in one case. Officials say the suspect tracked the victims on social media and sent them several inappropriate messages.

A sex crimes detective wrote in court filings that it is anticipated more students will come forward.

The suspect made his first appearance in court Saturday.
