A science teacher at Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs is under arrest for suspicion of sexual assault on a child.

Bryan Paul Mertz, 40, was arrested on charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust.

Colorado Springs police say a school resource officer was told about a sexual offense involving a high school teacher. When police interviewed the alleged victim, they got a search warrant for the suspect's house.

Police say because Mertz was a teacher and regularly had contact with minors, there could be other victims.
