An elementary school teacher was arrested Thursday, accused of sex offenses that allegedly took place at Meadow Hall Elementary School in Rockville, Md.
Montgomery County Police made the arrest after receiving information Wednesday from two 11-year-old female victims who said they were sexually abused by their teacher, Timothy Vincent Krupica.
An investigation revealed that Krupica, 30, inappropriately touched both victims and forced or attempted to force both victims to inappropriately touch him as well, police said. This reportedly happened on several occasions this school year.
Krupica, a resident of Frederick, Md., was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and several other sexual offense charges.
He was released on bond Friday.
The school district placed Krupica, a fifth-grade teacher at Meadow Hall since 2009, on administrative leave pending the investigation.
