An elementary school teacher is accused of sexually abusing a student in his Prince George’s County classroom.

Erwin Magnaye, a teacher at William Paca Elementary School in Landover, was arrested Tuesday. Prince George’s County Police say the mother of the alleged victim, a 9-year-old boy, contacted them in February.

According to court documents, Magnaye had inappropriate encounters with the boy, who was one of his students, between last September and this January.

Magnaye, a science and math instructor, is now on administrative leave.

Prince George’s County school officials say the school system is cooperating with the police investigation, and counselors are available for students and parents.

Riverdale resident and PGCPS Employee at Glenn Dale Elementary School  Jason Jamar Howard, 30, has been arrested by Prince George’s County police (PGPD) and charged with sexually abusing a student at the school.

Based on preliminary investigations—including notification from the victim’s parents—police believe that Howard sexually abused a child at Glenn Dale Elementary on April 17.

According to the charging documents, the confession stemmed from an  incident Wednesday in which a teacher saw Howard sit next to the child,  reach his hand  up the girl’s skirt and put his hand inside her underwear.

The teacher notified the principal of the incident. The child then told her parents, who contacted police.

Once arrested, Howard, an aide at the school, told police he had fondled the student about 10 to 15 times during the current and last school years, according to charging documents.~~> (Read more –Washingtonpost)  (NBC-News) ( Bowie-Patch) (WUSA9) (Gazzette) (PGPD)
