Francis Amiteye Ngissah, a 24-year-old man from Roseville, California, was arrested and accused of abusing players at the basketball academy he ran out of his home.
This sounds super creepy from the get go!
The arrest was for suspicion of child abuse involving cruel corporal punishment and willful cruelty, battery, and false imprisonment.
Four victims came to the police to report having been subjected to unusual physical punishment.
The boys were going to CCSE Prep Academy, a private college preparatory school for basketball athletes.
They were boarding at Ngissah's home.
So far, he's accused of abusing six of his players, aged 15-20.
The four that reported him to the cops said they had been tied up for hours and even had clothespins clamped to their nipples.
Ngissah was taken to county jail and released after posting $100,000 bail.
The cops expect more kids to step forward with accusations now that this awful case has gone public.
If you or anyone you know has any information regarding this case they ask you call the Roseville Police Department's investigation unit at (916) 774-5070.
We feel just terrible for those poor children but are so glad that this monster was finally stopped.
