A Omaha Public Schools Security Guard Ss Under Arrest Accused of sexually Assaulting At Least Two Children

OMAHA, NEBRASKA – An Omaha Public Schools security guard is under arrest accused of sexually assaulting at least two children — and detectives said they think there could be more victims.

Jose Luis Carreno, 39, faces three counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and one count of third-degree child sex assault. Due to the serious nature of the allegations, a judge ordered Carreno to be held without bond Friday.

Omaha police said, in September, a woman came forward saying nine years ago, when she was a child, Carreno sexually assaulted her. While police were investigating, they discovered a second victim who said Carreno sexually assaulted her while she was a student at Gomez Heritage Elementary School, where Carreno was employed as a security guard.

In court Friday, prosecutors laid out allegations from two separate victims. One, a child known to the family who said the attacks happened when she was around 8 or 9 years old. The other, a former OPS student who told police when she was in fourth or fifth grade, Carreno assaulted her in a tent in the kindergarten room.

OPD said it is working with Omaha Public Schools and Project Harmony as well as the Department of Health and Human Services.
