Clark Mahoney, 43, of Loma Linda was arrested Monday on suspicion of lewd acts with a child, according to a Fontana police news release.
Mahoney, a fourth grade teacher, was booked at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
Mahoney is scheduled to appear for arraignment today in Fontana Superior Courthouse.
The two students – who are 9- and 10-years-old – said Mahoney inappropriately touched them Monday at Date Elementary School, 9011 Oleander Ave., Fontana police Sgt. Jeff Decker said.
Investigators are looking at a potential third victim.
A school employee reported the allegations to Principal Jay Caballero, who immediately contacted the Fontana Unified School District administration, according to a district news release.
“This happened (Monday), was reported (Monday) and he was arrested (Monday),” Decker said.
Mahoney has worked at the school for about a decade, Decker said.
“There is a lot of history to go through and a lot of students to contact,” he said.
Investigators are looking to see if there are additional victims.
Parents and guardians of the alleged victims have been informed of the accusations, officials said.
Anyone with information concerning the incident can call the Fontana police at 909-350-7720.
