Gwangju teacher accused of molesting 5 studentsGwangju police in Gyeonggi yesterday sought an arrest warrant from a judge for a 50-year-old elementary school teacher surnamed Kang, on allegations he sexually molested five of his students. Kang is accused of forcibly hugging female students and groping their chests and buttocks inside a classroom and on the school’s rooftop.
The school learned of the allegations after five students deposited a letter in the mailbox of the school’s infirmary on Monday.
The school then informed the students’ parents that Kang’s alleged molestations occurred dozens of times over a period of three months. The parents requested a police investigation.
During the police investigation, Kang admitted he had physical contact with students but “had no intention of sexually harassing them.” The school suspended Kang from work.
