An athletic trainer suspected of sexual assaults against two boys when he worked at two San Fernando Valley high schools was arrested Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Police Department received a report Tuesday from a victim who alleged he “had been inappropriately touched” by 64-year-old Richard Turner at Birmingham High School in Lake Balboa, according to a department statement.

Turner was arrested Wednesday, and police identified a second victim who alleged he had been assaulted by Turner in 2017 when he was employed at Van Nuys High School.

Anyone with who may have been a victim of Turner or who has any information regarding potential additional sexual assaults was asked to call the LAPD 818-374-5415. Calls during nonbusiness hours or weekends should be made to 877-527-3247.

Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at lacrimestoppers.org.
