Police arrested Francis Amiteye Ngissah, 24, (pictured) at his Roseville home on Tuesday on suspicion of forgery and fraud. He is suspected of buying furniture for his home by fraudulent means, a police press release said.

Police allege that he defrauded a local business of about $8,000.

Ngissah, the president of CCSE Preparatory Academy, was booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of fraud, forgery and other related charges. He was released on $35,000 bond.

In early January, Roseville police detectives arrested Ngissah, on suspicion of inflicting corporal punishment on three teenagers and one young adult. The youths reported the punishment to Roseville police.

The students said they had been subjected to physical punishment, including being required to stand in the corner while restrained by zip ties and being pinched with the clothes pins.

They were boarding with Ngissah at his home on Woodleaf Circle in Roseville at the time of the alleged abuse.

CCSE Prep is described as a private college preparatory school for basketball athletes. Three of those who complained to authorities about their treatment are from foreign countries.
