“The survivor was receiving physical therapy treatments from the suspect due to a medical condition. On more than one occasion, the suspect engaged in sexual acts with the survivor,” San Jose Police Department Sgt. Christian Camarillo wrote.

Due to the fact that Cheng worked with other minors at the time of the reported offenses, the San José Police Department is seeking any other possible victims.

Anyone with information about this case or similar incidents involving Cheng is urged to contact Detective McCaughin #4462 or Detective Sergeant Ruybal #3719 of the San José Police Department’s Sexual Assault Investigations Unit at and or or call (408) 277-4102.
