Oxford teacher, coach accused of raping teen girl

Posted: Updated:
OXFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -

A gym teacher and soccer coach in Oxford faced alarming accusations when he appeared in court Monday, charged with raping a 14-year-old girl.

Dung Nguyen, 40, has worked at Oxford High School for the past two years. Former students say he was always very friendly.

"It's shocking. He seemed like a really good guy. He was always friendly toward the students. I would not expect anything like this,” Jeremy O’Connor said.

Police aren't saying much else except it is an open investigation.

The school superintendent said the gym teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave.

He is being held in the Worcester county House of Corrections and is due in court in June.
