BUCKEYE, Ariz. — A substitute teacher at a Buckeye elementary school has been arrested for allegedly inappropriately touching two female students.
Buckeye police say 28-year-old Brian Scritchfield of Litchfield Park is being held on suspicion of one count of child molestation and two counts of aggravated assault of a minor.
Police went to Westpark Elementary after school officials reported that two girls — ages 12 and 13 — had been inappropriately touched by a teacher Thursday.
Buckeye Elementary School District officials say Scritchfield won’t be returning to any campus in the district.
Scritchfield was employed by a temporary agency contracted by the school district.
Bond was set at $100,000 at Scritchfield’s initial court appearance Friday.
He doesn’t have an attorney yet.
