ANAHEIM – A 66-year-old Anaheim dance studio owner has been charged with sexually assaulting two students, and police Wednesday said they suspect there might be more victims and called on any to come forward.
Richard Hirschl was charged Nov. 3 with four felony counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor younger than 14, according to court records.
Hirschl was arrested Friday. He posted $100,000 bail and was released the same day, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.
The defendant owns Hirschl School of Dance at 1012 N. Tustin Ave., Carringer said. He is accused of assaulting one girl when she was 12 years old in 2012, and another girl when she was 11 to 13 years old between 2014 and 2017, Carringer said.
Hirschl is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 21 at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.
Anyone with information relevant to investigators was asked to call detectives at 714-765-1679.
