    Anthony Loza was arrested this weekend.

    A San Jose cheerleading coach was arrested Sunday on suspicion of sexual abuse, police announced.

    Anthony Joshua Loza, 23, coached at Andrew Hill High School and Energy Athletics. He is in Santa Clara County Jail on $500,000 bail after allegedly molesting a minor at one of the two locations "over the past three months," according to the San Jose Mercury News.

    It's not yet clear if the person in question attended both the school and/or the Energy Athletics gym in the 1100 block of Felipe Avenue in San Jose, the newspaper reported.

    He is not believed to have abused anyone else, the newspaper reported, but anyone else who has been victimized is asked to contact San Jose police at 408-277-4102, or to call anonymously at 408-947-7867.
