WYLIE (CBSDFW.COM) – A man who taught piano lessons out of his house is accused of sexually assaulting at least one of his students.
The Wylie Police Department arrested Broderick “Rodgin” Arpon, 45, on two counts of Sexual Assault of a Child.
On Monday, January 9, 2017 police responded to a call in the 1300 block of Summerdale Lane in reference to allegations of the sexual assault of a boy. Arpon was arrested the next day.
Arpon provided piano lessons out of his home on Summerdale Lane, which is where the incident happened, according to a release from police.
A probable cause affidavit states Arpron offered his victim massages as “a reward” for playing the piano well. The massages escalated to full-body massages, with Arpron taking off the little boy’s clothes, the affidavit states. The victim told his mother the massages and eventual molestation happened on a mattress hidden in a closet.
The affidavit states the victim came forward after his mother became aware of Arpon’s previous arrest for sexual assault of a child. She was concerned and asked her son if anything had ever happened during his piano lessons, which is when he told her everything despite Arpron allegedly manipulating him into keeping it a secret.
The Wylie Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding the investigation or any unreported incidents to contact Detective Helen Taylor at 214.380.9556.
Police are investigating whether there are more victims.
Arpon remains in the Collin County Jail. His bond is set at $100,000.
