A teacher in the city of Rolling Hills Estates has been arrested on charges of having sex with an underage girl, reports KTLA.

Anthony Angellano, 31, faces charges for oral copulation and digital penetration with a minor. The girl was reportedly 16 and 17 years old when the incidents occurred, and while she was a student at Peninsula High at the time, the encounters allegedly took place at Angellano's house in Wilmington.

Angellano is a dance teacher who came up with a class at Peninsula High School called "Co-ed Choreo." He's suspected of having another underage victim 11 years ago.

Angellano is being held on $350,000 bail.
