A substitute teacher has been arrested on suspicion of molesting four children inside a classroom in separate incidents.

Peter Morales, 69, has been accused of touching his female students at Adams Elementary School in the city of Santa Ana, California.

Police said the alleged victims, aged eight and and nine, reported that he touched them inappropriately.

They said in a statement: "On May 06, 2022, Santa Ana Police officers responded to Adams Elementary School to investigate allegations that Peter Morales, a 69-year-old substitute teacher, sexually molested four female students while in the classroom.

"Each victim was molested individually and at different times throughout the day."

They reported that he was a teacher for the Santa Ana school system for 18 years before he became a supply teacher.

According to ABC 7, investigators believe there are possibly more alleged victims who are yet to come forward.

Morales was booked for child molestation and subsequently posted bail after it was set at $100,000 (£80,000), police said.

The Daily Star previously reported that a youth pastor drove across state lines to have sex with a girl at a summer bible camp in America.

Joshua Henley, 33, sickeningly travelled back to Tennessee to take the minor to Indiana in June 2021, where he slept with the teen who had just turned 15.

She later disclosed that the former pastor has been engaging her in sexual activity since she was 13-years-old.

Another 15-year-old child had told an adult that he had also asked her to send sexually explicit photographs in 2020.

Police found the images of the two girls on his mobile and also came across footage of him having sex with another girl just months after she turned 14 in 2020.
