SSFPD Media Release: Lewd and Lascivious Acts with Minor

South San Francisco, CA  May 10, 2018 Submitted by SSFPD

The South San Francisco Police  Department  initiated  an  investigation  on  April  25, 2018,  after  receiving information alleging a middle school teacher at Westborough Middle School  was having  inappropriate  interactions with juvenile students during school hours. The investigation led to the arrest of the  teacher, Joseph Toy,  who has been a teacher at the school for approximately 13 years . As a result of the investigation, Toy was arrested by South San Francisco Police Detectives earlier today, May 10, 2018, at his home in San Bruno. Toy was subsequently booked  into the San  Mateo County jail on numerous felony charges related to lewd and  lascivious acts with minors.


The South San Francisco Unified School District  takes allegations  against  their employees  very  seriously  and handles them carefully. The safety of the students is paramount and will not be jeopardized. The school district administration immediately placed Toy on administrative leave once  the initial  information  was  received  on  April 25, 2018, and they notified the parents of those students  who were  reported  to  be involved.  The school  district leaders are cooperating, and working together with the South San Francisco Police investigators as the investigation continues. Toy has remained on administrative leave throughout the investigation.


The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office is also working with investigators on the ongoing investigation. Anyone with any information related to this investigation is encouraged to contact the South San Francisco Police Department at 650-877-8900.
