The San Diego County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday that 19-year-old Nicholas Piazza was arrested last week and booked into Vista Detention Facility on charges that included performing lewd acts with a child under 14, committing felony while on bail and contempt of court.
Piazza was arrested Sept. 29, after a boy’s mother reached out to Child Welfare Services the day before, according to a news release issued by the sheriff’s department. She said her 7-year-old son told her that his swim instructor, Piazza, had sexually assaulted him on two separate occasions during private swim lessons, which took place between Sept. 7-25 in Rancho Santa Fe.
Piazza was employed as an independent swim instructor at the time of his arrest, according to Sgt. Howard Kluge of the San Diego Sheriff’s Office.Read NBC San Diego
