Cobb schools bus driver accused of entering 10-year-old student’s home
A Marietta man, Rayudu Nagabhushana Gogineni, remains in jail after being arrested Wednesday after allegedly entering the home of a 10-year-old student.
According to the arrest warrant, Gogineni, 55, claimed to be a school bus driver. Police allege Gogineni entered the home of the student’s mother, who lives off Delk Road, asking to see her daughter. He was arrested and charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor loitering.
Per the warrant, the mother told police Gogineni had been to her home three times and questioned neighbors about where her daughter lives. She believed he was there to harm her daughter and fled only after being challenged. The alleged incident occurred while school was off for Presidents Day.
In the warrant, police wrote that Gogineni is “the bus driver for the homeowner’s 10-year-old daughter.” The home listed in the warrant is zoned for Powers Ferry Elementary School in the Cobb County School District.
A spokesperson for Cobb Schools said, “The bus driver is not serving Cobb students, pending the outcome of the investigation. We cannot comment further on this until the investigation has been completed.”
Gogineni is being held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on $20,000 bond, according to jail records.
