Early this week Chula Vista Police Family Protection Unit Detectives began investigating a child molestation case involving a six-year old girl. The alleged perpetrator is a fifth grade school teacher with the Chula Vista Elementary School District.
Detectives arrested Eduardo Arturo Serrano, age 56 of Chula Vista. Serrano is currently in custody at the Chula Vista Jail. Mr. Serrano has been charged with one count of child molestation and one count of lewd conduct with a child. He is being held on $500,000.00 bail.
The incident occurred late last week at the Serrano residence. The child later told her mother what had happened. The mother immediately notified police. The victim is not a student at the school where Serrano works.
Detectives are continuing the investigation including a second allegation. If anyone has any additional information regarding Serrano, please contact Detective Glenn Isaaks at Chula Vista Police, (619) 691-5192.
