SALIDA, Colo. (CBS4)– A substitute teacher at Salida Middle School, accused of sexually assaulting a child, has been released from jail after posting bond.

Wayne Zulla, 70, of Howard faces a long list of charges after serious allegations involving students that he was supposed to be helping at Salida Middle School surfaced.

Salida police have since issued an arrest warrant for Zulla after they say they interviewed several students.

Zulla faces charges including harassment, child abuse, sex assault and sex assault on a child by one in a position of trust.

CBS4 has learned Zulla bonded out of jail, but the District Attorney is asking the court to increase the bond that was set at $10,000.

They believe more victims may come forward. The Salida police investigation continues as already more than a 20 students have been interviewed.

“The office is filled with a dozen kids waiting to be interviewed by police. It’s hard to put in words how you feel,” said one parent.

Zulla’s attorney did not want to comment on the case to CBS4.
