After-school worker arrested on suspicion of lewd acts with student

A Millbrae man employed as an aide for an after-school program in San Mateo was arrested last week on suspicion of kissing and inappropriately touching a female student, police said.

Eric Michael Renz, 20, was taken into custody at his home without incident Friday on charges that he committed lewd acts on a child under the age of 14, according to the San Mateo Police Department.

Renz reportedly befriended a student in the after-school program at Horrall Elementary School at 949 Ocean View Ave. The alleged inappropriate encounter occurred during the late afternoon Oct. 18, according to a joint statement from the police and the San Mateo-Foster City School District.

Renz was “immediately removed” from having contact with children when the charges came to light, the statement said.

“Interviews were conducted with the victim during the week, and detectives established probable cause for an arrest,” the release said.

Detectives want anyone who believes Renz might have had other contacts with minors to come forward by calling the San Mateo Police Department’s investigations unit at (650) 522-7650.
