Arrest of Philadelphia school district teacher for sexual assault

Case # 19-028758

In July, 2019, a victim reported to the Abington Police that she was sexually assaulted
by her teacher, Larry Perry, while she attended Parkway Center City Middle College in
Philadelphia. The victim reported that the relationship began when she was his 13 year old
student, and Perry would send her flirtatious emails and text messages, and touch her face
and buttocks inappropriately and in a sexual manner. When the victim turned 15, the
relationship turned sexual. The victim reported that on numerous occasions, Perry would
drive the victim to his home at 1760 Fleming Avenue, located in the Willow Grove section
of Abington Township, and have sexual intercourse with her. Perry provided the victim
with a pre-paid cellular phone during her junior and senior years of high school so that he
could communicate discretely with her. Perry would sometimes request that the minor
victim send him nude photographs.

On August 29, 2019, an arrest warrant was issued for Larry Perry, who is 51 years of
age. He was arrested without incident at his residence and charged with Institutional Sexual
Assault, Endangering the Welfare of Children, Corruption of Minors, Unlawful Contact
with a Minor, and Sexual Abuse of Children, which are all felonies. He was transported to
Montgomery County Correctional Facility after failing to post $100,000 cash bail.
