BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A Our Lady of Mount Carmel teacher and coach wanted for charges of sex abuse, has turned himself in Tuesday, according to Baltimore County Police.

A warrant was issued Monday for Robert Bonner, who was also a part time assistant athletic director at the Catholic elementary and high school in Middle River, for charges of sex abuse of a minor, second degree assault and two counts of fourth degree sex offense.

The incidents that led to his arrest occurred on Jan. 19 and 20 and involved a student from the high school and inappropriate verbal and text message conversations.

Bonner worked at the school from 1992-1999 and then from 2011-2017. He was suspended Jan. 23 when police gave the school permission to do so.

He has been released on a $25,000 bond. Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.

  1. Let’s hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by Robert Bonner will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened. Silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others
