VIDEO: San Jose math camp teacher arrested in sex assault on 12-year-old girl


SAN JOSE (KRON) — A San Jose math teacher has been arrested in the sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl, the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies arrested 45-year-old Chad Zitzner, of San Jose, at around 1p.m. for “lewd and lascivious acts with a child.”

Deputies say Zitzner met the 12-year-old in July 2017 while teaching in a private summer math camp in Saratoga.

“Math Enrichment employs teachers from various school districts to teach during the summer break,” police said in a press release.

The mother reported the alleged sex assault. She said Zitzner had “touched her [the girl] inappropriately on multiple occasions while at camp.’

Zitzner was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail. A $300,000 warrant was issued for Zitzner’s arrest.

He is a teacher with the San Jose Unified School District at Broadway High School.

The school website says he is a world history teacher. The sheriff’s office said he was placed on leave.

San Jose Unified told KRON4 they have “no comment.”
