Advisory: DETECTIVES ARREST HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL COACH & SAFETY OFFICER FOR MULTIPLE SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES

Arrestee: Omar Rojas (28) Santa Ana




Synopsis: A 28-year-old volleyball coach at Century High School was arrested for having sex with several minor students. Omar Rojas is also currently employed as a District Safety Officer for the Santa Ana Unified School District. Santa Ana Unified School District Police contacted the Santa Ana Police Department to report allegations that Rojas had sexual intercourse with several students.

Santa Ana Police Department Special Crimes Section Detectives commenced the investigation and concluded that the incidents occurred in 2015. Rojas was not a District Safety Officer when these crimes were committed. On numerous occasions, Rojas would have the victims excused from class in order to meet them for the purposes of engaging in sexual activity on campus. The victims were 17-years-old at the time and no longer students at Century High School.

Rojas was arrested and confessed to the allegations. He was booked at the Orange County Jail on multiple sexual assault charges and his bail has been set at $1,000,000.

SAPD Detectives believe there may be additional victims and ask anyone with information to contact Detective Nick Vega at 714-245-8368, nvega@santa-ana.org or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
