A driving instructor has been accused of sexually battering a female student, and police believe there may be more victims. Jorge Ernesto Ubillus, 70, has been a manager at Prudential Driving and Traffic School, located in the 5400 block of Santa Monica Blvd. in East Hollywood, since 1983, NBC LA reports. He was arrested on Monday on suspicion of three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery involving a female student. A release from the LAPD said the alleged attacks happened in July and August while in his office and while teaching the student how to drive.

Ubillus has since been released on a $30,000 bail. Police are currently looking for any additional victims and asking for anyone with information to call 213-473-0439 or, during nights and weekends, 877-527-3247.
