Posted: Updated:

Police in Mamaroneck are looking for more possible victims after a middle school teacher was charged with statutory rape. Omar Rodriguez, 27, a music teacher at Hommocks Middle School, has already been charged for allegedly inappropriately touching and taking risqué pictures of some of his young female students. On Saturday, a 16-year-old from Connecticut told police she and Rodriguez had sex several times over a couple of months. The alleged victim knew Rodriguez from a church choir group and says she decided to come forward after hearing about last week?s charges. Rodriguez surrendered to police Monday and an investigation is underway. Related Story
