(Scroll down for video) Two school employees were arrested and charged with child sexual assault after they allegedly sexually assaulted students, according to police reports in New York.
Brooklyn Police said that two Williamsburg school employees were arrested on Wednesday, after being accused of forcing a teenage girl to engage in sexual acts with them.
William Abreu, 44, a former assistant principal of the Progress High School, is accused of raping a 17-year-old, who had recently graduated from the institution.
Juan Martinez, 51, a former administrator at the school, is accused of forcing a 16-year-old to perform oral sex on him.
Abreu and Martinez colluded to force the two victims to submit to sexual conduct and keep quiet about it afterwards.
The two victims came forward, and their cooperation led to the charges against the men.
Abreu’s bail was set at $25,000. He was charged with one felony count of rape. He was also charged with misdemeanor sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.
Martinez’s bail was set at $35,000. He faces felony and misdemeanor sexual abuse charges.
Abreu is married and has four children. His wife was in court with him on Wednesday.
