LOS ANGELES (AP) – A 23-year-old East Los Angeles high school volleyball coach has been arrested for allegedly engaging in lewd acts with two 15-year-old female students.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker says Jonathan Adam Roldan was arrested at his East Los Angeles home Friday night. He was a volleyball coach at Esteban Torres High School. A student reported alleged sexual contact to school officials and they alerted authorities.

Sheriff’s investigators discovered a second student who allegedly was inappropriately touched.

Investigators were at the school Monday conducting interviews.

Roldan is being held on $1 million bail and scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.  A message seeking comment was left at a number listed to Roldan.

Los Angeles Unified School District did not immediately provide comment.
