A longtime teacher in Glendale has been arrested on suspicion of child molestation, officials announced Friday.
Brett Mohr was arrested Feb. 1 after Los Angeles Police Department officials received allegations of inappropriate conduct by Mohr involving students.
The incidents allegedly occurred while Mohr worked at Glendale Adventist Academy, where he has been employed since 1998, police said.
No further details about the allegations have been released.
Mohr has been charged with multiple felony counts, according to police.

Pending confirmation that criminal charges have been filed for sexual misconduct, we are taking action to suspend his teaching certificate immediately,” the statement read.
