San Antonio teacher arrested following alleged 'inappropriate relationship' with a student, SAPD says

The 28-year-old suspect faces sex assault charges following his Friday arrest. Authorities are investigating whether there may have been other victims.

SAN ANTONIO — A teacher and coach at a San Antonio-area charter school was arrested Friday after police officials accused him of sexually assaulting at least one student.

Keith Aron Cottrell Jr., 28, was taken into custody without incident on Friday, SAPD spokesperson Jennifer Rodriguez said. She added that police believe there is a “high, likely possibility” that there are other victims.

He has been charged with sexual assault of a child under the age of 17, a second-degree felony crime.

Investigators received a tip saying Cottrell Jr. was involved in an “inappropriate relationship with a female minor," Rodriguez said. Authorities didn’t specify the school but said the abuse occurred between June and September.

San Antonio police are continuing to investigate.
