Bridgeport swim coach sends sexual texts to 13-year-old: police
BRIDGEPORT–A swim coach was arrested on Wednesday for sending inappropriate texts to a teen.
Alan Marcel, 28, of Norwalk, sent text messages with explicitly sexual content to a 13-year-old swimmer on the team he works for. The victim’s mother found the text and told a member of the board of directors of the swim club.
Marcel is also an instructor at the swim club, which is located at a recreation facility at the University of Bridgeport but is unaffiliated with the university.
Marcel was charged with risk of injury to a minor and enticing a minor, and he’s being held on a $20,000 bond.
