Recently, a former Alisal High School student reported that over 20 years ago, his teacher 63-year-old Patrick Egan, physically abused him on campus.  The Salinas Police Department initiated an investigation and uncovered additional victims and information, which substantiated the victim's claim.  We notified the Salinas Union High School District (SUHSD), who have been extremely cooperative throughout the investigation.  As soon as the District administration received confirmation of the allegations, Mr. Egan was placed on administrative leave and subsequently resigned.  Mr. Egan had been employed within the district since 1984 as a teacher and at times, an athletic coach.

The Investigations Bureau is asking anyone with information regarding Mr. Egan's alleged crimes and misconduct to call Detective Pete Gomez at (831) 758-7273 or email him at [email protected] . If you would like to remain anonymous, call the Salinas Police Department Anonymous Tip Line at 831-775-4222.
