An instructor at the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo was arrested Saturday on suspicion of performing a non-consensual sex act on one of his students at a party, police said. The incident allegedly occurred sometime on Oct. 2 or Oct. 3 when the professor invited students to his home for a social gathering, Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Park said.
Park said that at one point during the gathering, the instructor, Scott Saarheim, led one of the students to another part of the house and gave him an unidentified intoxicating substance. At some point after that, the student realized that the professor was orally copulating him, Park said. The student then left the party.
The student was embarrassed and didn’t report the incident to police for several days, Park said. He eventually did report it, and Saarheim was arrested on Saturday. Saarheim was booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of felony oral copulation while the victim was intoxicated, Park said.
