Fresno police have arrested a Malloch Elementary School library technician on suspicion of sexual assault on a teenager.
Cameron Ward, 25, of Fresno was arrested Thursday morning at the northwest Fresno school and booked into the Fresno County Jail, the police department said.
Fresno Unified School District officials heard allegations of inappropriate conduct between Ward and a high school student on Wednesday, the district said in a statement. Police were called and an investigation took place.
Detectives discovered that Ward met two teenage victims during the 2013 and 2014 school year and assaulted one of the victims the following year, police said. He also sent inappropriate sexual photos to a victim.

If the allegations prove true, the district said it will take the appropriate action to terminate the employee.
