Arrest in lewd acts with a child
Submitted By Sgt. Ken Forkus, Hayward PD
On November 18 the Hayward Police Department was notified, via a state mandated reporter, of a possible sexual child abuse. The Hayward Police Department initiated an investigation, and learned the victim (now 14 years old) had been in a sexual relationship with the suspect, Mia Cummings (now 29 years old), since he was 12 years old. The investigation revealed that Cummings was employed at All Saints Catholic School as an after school program assistant, while the victim was a student at the school.
Cummings was arrested on November 26, and booked at the Hayward Police Department Jail on multiple felony counts of lewd acts with a child. She is currently in custody at the Alameda County Jail and has been charged with eight felony counts. Her bail has been set at $800,000.
All Saints Catholic School administration has fully cooperated with this investigation, and at this time, we have no indication that Cummings victimized any other children.
