NORTH COUNTY — A 35-year-old high school soccer coach was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of committing sex crimes and fired from his job after reports of inappropriate behavior.
Robin Alarcon, who coached the girls freshman soccer team at Del Norte High School in 4S Ranch, was arrested by San Diego police officers on suspicion of luring a minor for a sexual offense and sending harmful material to a minor with intent to seduce, San Diego sex crimes Lt. Rick O’Hanlon said yesterday.
Alarcon, a coach on other campuses as well, is accused of sending a few “very inappropriate” text messages to a female student Tuesday night, O’Hanlon said.
The victim’s mother told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the incident began when her 14-year-old daughter, a freshman on the soccer team, texted Alarcon asking what color jersey she was supposed to wear in the upcoming game.
His response was flirty, and the girl tried to end the conversation, her mother said. The texts started up again the next morning and got more sexually explicit, including one text in which he reportedly invited the girl and a fellow teammate to join him and his girlfriend in an “orgy.”
“She didn’t do anything to provoke that kind of behavior. I’m thankful nothing worse happened,” she said.
The girl informed school officials about the messages shortly after, and police were immediately notified, O’Hanlon said. Alarcon was arrested at the school about 2 p.m. and is being held on $75,000 bail at the downtown San Diego jail.
