A substitute teacher for a Southern California elementary school has been arrested on suspicion of molesting four students in a classroom, authorities said.
The alleged victims, ages 8 and 9, told investigators the teacher inappropriately touched them in separate incidents at Adams Elementary School in Santa Ana, according to local police.
“Each victim was harassed individually and at different times of the day,” the Santa Ana Police Department said in a statement.
The perpetrator, identified by ABC 7 in Los Angeles as 69-year-old Peter Morales, posted $100,000 bail after his arrest.
Morales was a teacher for the Santa Ana school system for 18 years before becoming a sub.
Detectives believe other suspected victims may be out there, ABC 7 reported.
