Malvern Music Teacher Accused Of Sexually Abusing Three Students

Posted: Updated:
MALVERN, Pa. -

A Malvern music teacher is under arrest accused of sexually abusing three of his students.

Police say the victims are just 6 years old.

“My heart goes out to the alleged victims. There's nothing more horrible in mind than this,” said Dave Stolzfus.

Malvern School of Music owner Dave Stoltzfus says he's distraught after finding out that one of his piano instructors, 44 year-old Anton Fomin, is accused of sexually assaulting three 6-year-old students during private lessons at the school.

“I was told about the allegations last Thursday, and I immediately contacted borough police as soon as I found out,” said Stolzfus.

According to police, Fomin inappropriately touched the children during piano "exercises.”

He allegedly exposed himself to at least two of the victims and showed them nude pictures and videos of children and adults on his computer, according to police.

Stoltzfus says Fomin and his wife were teachers at the school for nearly 5 years, both had clean records, and were immediately terminated upon learning of the allegations.

Tonight, Fomins' wife answered the door of their Phoenixville home, but refused to talk to Fox 29.

The couple opened up their own music school out of their home in January, according to the Kimberton School of Music's website.

Fomin and his wife are from Russia we are told that he was in the process of getting his Green Card to stay in the U.S.

However, tonight he's in a jail cell because he was not able to post $300,000 bail.
