Long Beach police are asking possible additional victims to come forward after a man who provides in-home music lessons was accused of performing lewd acts on a minor.

Officers were dispatched to the area of Fourth Street and Ximeno Avenue on May 12, regarding a report of a lewd act with a minor, the Long Beach Police Department said in a news release Thursday.

A girl said she was inappropriately touched earlier that day by a man who gives in-home music lessons. Police did not provide information on whether the man was her teacher.

Scott remains in custody at Men’s Central Jail on $125,000 bail.

Detectives are seeking possible additional victims.
