Santa Ana Teacher’s Aide Accused of Child Sexual Abuse

A man who works as an aide and after-school instructor at a Santa Ana elementary school has been taken into custody for the alleged sexual abuse of a girl who was 10-years-old when the reported incident took place, and the authorities suspect there are other underage victims.

23-year-old Eddy Bustamante Infante has been employed at the Greenville Elementary School in Santa Ana for approximately three years. His duties at the school have included assisting as a teacher’s aide and serving as an instructional provider in the after-school program.

A 12-year-old girl who attended the after-school program has come forward and issued a report to the police alleging that Infante had abused her sexually when she was 10-years-old.

While investigating the claims the authorities reported that they discovered two more young girls who said that they had sexual-based encounters with Infante as well, but none of the girls had reported the incidents after they had allegedly taken place until recently.

Infante, a Santa Ana resident, was arrested on Friday for the allegations made by the three children and he was placed into the Orange County Jail where his bail was set at $1 million, and he is facing several charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
