    Man with many piercings denied entry to Dubai

    A heavily tattooed German man whose face is embellished with horn implants and more than 100 piercings said Sunday he was refused entry to Dubai without reason, forcing him to skip a planned appearance at a nightclub.  His look may have been a step too far for the Gulf's most liberal city, where a carefully cultivated reputation for tolerance and cutting-edge cosmopolitanism occasionally clashes with the region's conservative Islamic values.

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police have arrested a New York City schoolteacher on a rape charge, the NYPD confirmed.

Authorities charged Anthony Criscuolo, 40, with first-degree rape, police said.

Criscuolo, a fifth-grade special education teacher at P.S. 386 in the Bronx, is accused of raping a 10-year-old student, according to Metro.us.

The girl's mother found sexual emails between her daughter and Criscuolo, so she contacted police, Metro.us reported.

"He has been reassigned away from the school and any students," said Connie Pankratz, a Department of Education spokesperson. "We plan to seek his termination."

Criscuolo makes $72,990 a year, according to the DOE. He started his career in 2002 as a substitute special education teacher at P.S. 178 in the Bronx. In 2003, he was appointed to a full-time position. He has also worked at P.S. 498 in the Bronx.
