PS 386 teacher Anthony Criscuolo is walked from the Special Victims’ Unit in Manhattan to an awaiting NYPD police car.
Anthony Criscuolo, 40, allegedly sent the email to his fifth grade student at Public School 386 on Tuesday — a day after he is accused of raping the girl inside his car parked at a Soundview school, prosecutors said.
“I was too rough. Sorry,” he wrote to the girl, according to court papers. “It’s normal. You may feel pain for a few days.”
The fiend was ordered held on $750,000 bond and $500,000 cash bail after he was arraigned early Thursday on a slew of charges that include rape, predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
Criscuolo was arrested Wednesday, after the parents of his victim found a string of sexually explicit emails sent by the twisted teacher, sources said.
Criscuolo even penned a bogus letter, typed on paper that included the school’s letterhead, to the parents that claimed their daughter wrote an award-winning persuasive essay, sources said.
But when the teacher picked the girl up in his silver Dodge Charger he brought her straight to a Queens parking lot and raped her in the car, which had tinted windows to hide the attack, sources said.
“If these facts are proven to be correct, it’s really a totally outrageous situation,” said NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly, adding that investigators are trying to determine if there are any other victims.
“It’s really an egregious situation,” he said.
The hulking Criscuolo — who also sought work as a model by creating a profile on Explore Talent — also allegedly wrote the child that he was considering leaving his wife to be with the girl, sources said.
“He was manipulating her to keep her from talking,” the girl’s aunt told the Daily News on Wednesday. “She was scared.”
“He needs to die,” she said.
Criscuolo’s neighbors said they barely saw the accused rapist at his Bronx home.
“We never saw anybody go in there,” said one woman. “Not a light on, nothing.”
