Norwalk math tutor arrested on molestation charge
Frank Chung, who owns the tutoring center and has worked there for five years, provided after-school instruction. He was arrested Thursday at his home in La Palma on suspicion of molesting a teenager.
Prior to opening the center, Chung worked in Northern California for 25 years.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Scott said the allegations were reported to Norwalk patrol deputies on Tuesday after the 13-year-old victim was overheard telling one of her siblings of inappropriate sexual contact with the suspect on several occasions.
Detectives from the sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau conducted numerous interviews and background checks on Chung. He was arrested at his home and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
Investigators believe there are more victims and are requesting help from the public. Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call the Sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau at (877) 710-LASD.
