High school assistant wrestling coach from Tarrytown accused sexual contact with minor

Detectives are investigating if Tyler Sick, 29, had any other inappropriate interactions with students


SCARSDALE — A high school wrestling coach was arrested Monday after he allegedly had sexual contact with a minor.

Tyler Sick, 29, has been charged with third-degree rape, according to the Westchester County Jail's website. Sick is a Tarrytown native, a New York City school teacher and an assistant wrestling coach at Edgemont High School. Sick is accused of having illegal sexual contact with a minor.

On Monday, Greenburgh Police Dept. Special Victims Unit arrested Sick.

Detectives are trying to figure out if any other students have had any inappropriate interactions with Sick.

Sick was being held on $20,000 bail and is scheduled to be back in court on Tuesday.

The Edgemont wrestling team that Sick was a part of had been a winning one in recent years. Since 2003, the team had had six league championships, 10 all-state wrestlers and a state championship.

Since his arrest, his name has been removed from the team's website.

Edgemont School District Superintendent Dr. Victoria Kniewel released a statement on the allegations. It reads:

“Anytime a child is harmed by someone entrusted with their care, it is especially appalling. This situation is no different. Such actions are contrary to every value that the teachers, staff, and administrators of the Edgemont School District hold dear. We are encouraging any students and/or parents who have concerns to contact our school administrators, counselors, psychologists and/or the Greenburgh Police Department Special Victims Unit. It goes without saying that law enforcement will have our full cooperation in their continuing investigation.”
