Davis PD: Man arrested in 2 child molestations

By Bill Lindelof

Davis police have arrested a 43-year-old man on suspicion of molestation.

Carl Mitchel Testerman, a Davis resident, was arrested Tuesday in Sacramento, police said today. He is being held in Yolo County Jail on $1 million bail.

Davis Police Sgt. Paul Doroshov said Testerman is suspected of molesting two children between the ages of 10 and 17 years old.

One of the victims confided in a relative about inappropriate acts allegedly committed by Testerman, police said. The relative then called authorities on Aug. 2.

Further police investigation revealed that there is a second suspected victim, said Doroshov.

The suspected molestations began about July 2009, police said.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant that alleges Testerman is suspected of committing 11 counts of sexual battery and one count lewd acts with a minor under 14 years old.

Testerman is a high school English teacher at Vanden High School in Fairfield, Solano County.

"The victims have no relation to Vanden High or the school district," said Doroshov. "This is not job-related as far as we know."
