A teacher from a high school in St Catherine has been taken into custody by the Spanish Town police on suspicion of sexual impropriety allegedly committed against a number of male students.

THE STAR was informed that police personnel attached to the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse picked up the educator at school yesterday morning.

It was revealed that a number of statements from the male students have been collected as the police further their probe against the male teacher.

While not disclosing his identity, investigators told THE STAR that the teacher will be facing a number of charges arising from incidents that took place from late 2013 into the current school year.

Allegations are that the teacher is said to have fondled and did other ungodly acts against the boys.

It was revealed that having received initial reports on the issue, investigators launched a probe into the matter, during which, parents, guardians, and some of those affected by the allegations came forward and made formal reports.
