Police in the central province of Quang Nam are investigating accusations that a primary school teacher molested at least three girls aged eight to nine for several months.
The 48-year old man, who ironically teaches moral education at the Zo Nong Primary School, has not returned to the school since the police began investigations earlier this week.
The police have had the three victims examined at a hospital. “We are awaiting the results,” a deputy head of the Nam Giang District police department said.
School managers received complaints from two families in mid-April that the teacher had told their daughters to visit either his office or the computer room and sexually assaulted them several times since September.
The parents of the third girl complained on April 19, the police said, adding that investigators are trying to find out if there were more victims.
