The Bronx, NY (May 30, 2019) – The teacher who was accused on Tuesday of raping a 13-year-old girl on multiple occasions was taken into custody on those charges as of Wednesday, May 29th. 28-year-old Jonathan Pol was a teacher at Mott Hall Community School until rape allegations against him surfaced earlier this week.
According to authorities, the Bronx teacher was hospitalized due to an apparent suicide attempt after the victim came forward and accused him of rape. Very few details concerning the nature of the alleged incidents have been released, although investigators stated that Pol took the girl to a secluded location in his car on at least two occasions.
At this time, Pol is being charged with the rape of the 13-year-old girl, who police say he sexually abused multiple times during May of this year. No further details have been provided.
