On July 26, 2018, the Aurora Police Department was made aware of allegations of abuse involving a juvenile female student and a teacher at Vista PEAK Preparatory School located at 24500 E 6th Avenue. Subsequently, a comprehensive investigation was conducted by the Aurora Police Crimes Against Children (CAC) Unit and it was learned that an inappropriate sexual relationship existed between the student and the teacher. This investigation took a number of days to complete as detectives completed interviews, collected statements, etc.

During the investigation, the Aurora Police Department developed probable cause to arrest the teacher, Gabriel Alsina (DOB 07/07/1983), for Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust and Pattern of Abuse. Alsina was arrested this morning, August 7, 2018, at Vista PEAK Preparatory School prior to the start of school. Since the time that the incident was reported to the Aurora Police Department, Alsina has not had any contact with Students. Alsina has been employed as a teacher at Vista PEAK Preparatory School since July, 2013. The Aurora Police Department works in close partnership with the Aurora Public School District and they have cooperated fully with this investigation.

Due to the nature of this case and to protect the active criminal investigation, no further details will be released at this time.  This case is now in the hands of the 18th Judicial District so further media inquiries should be directed to their office.

The Aurora Police Department cares greatly for the safety and wellbeing of Aurora’s student body. If any parents, students or teachers have information about this case or wish to report inappropriate behavior involving Alsina, please contact Aurora Police Dispatch (non-emergency line) immediately at (303) 627-3100.
