A Southern California substitute teacher was booked for three sex offenses involving at least one minor, police say.

Prince allegedly targeted female minors. Authorities released a photo of Prince hoping that other potential victims come forward.

“Juvenile Division detectives are overseeing the investigation and releasing the suspects booking photo because they believe the suspect is responsible for additional, unreported sexual assaults,” police said.
