US citizen David D McMahon, an English teacher, was arrested over suspected child molestation in Shanghai.

McMahon, 32, taught English at the Pudong campus of Shanghai French School, a private institution. On May 12, a French student at the school and her mother turned to local police to file a report, accusing McMahon of molesting her and other students many times since September last year.

A police investigation found that McMahon was suspected of molesting five girls and two boys, all age 6 to 10, under the cover of checking homework. Of the six victims, five are from France and one from Italy.
