Police say they’ve found second victim of music teacher accused of sexually abusing minors

Long Beach police on Tuesday said they’ve identified a second victim in the case of a music teacher facing sexual abuse allegations.

The victim reported that the suspect, 55-year-old Bryan Scott, allegedly performed lewd acts on her while she was a juvenile, between 2015 and 2019, according to police.

Scott was arrested in May after a girl said she was “inappropriately touched,” according to the Long Beach Police Department.
