A former instructor is charged with sexually assaulting students at at Thermalito elementary school.
50 year old You Lee Vang was arrested in Alaska last month, and extradited to Butte County on Monday.
Detectives say Vang worked as an English-as-a-second-language instructor for Hmong students at Poplar Avenue School between 2001 and 2011.
In 2011 an alleged victim told her parents she was sexually assaulted by Vang when she was eight years old.
Investigators say they located three additional victims, but their families refused to cooperate ... and Vang left the state before he could be questioned.
A warrant was finally issued and Vang was arrested in Alaska.
He faces nine felony counts.
Detectives told Action News there may be more victims ... and anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's department.###
