CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina middle school teacher was arrested Saturday and charged him with indecent liberties and a sex act with a student, WSOC reports.
Charles Naas, 26, teaches seventh-grade mathematics, according to the Alexander Graham Middle School website.
Police believe that a juvenile went to Naas’ home for tutoring when inappropriate sexual contact was made. Investigators are working to determine if there are any additional victims.
On Friday, officers got information about a sexual assault involving Naas and a student. It’s unknown when the alleged incident happened.
