An Ajax elementary school teacher is facing charges in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 10-year-old student.
Durham regional police say the alleged assault occurred at Da Vinci Public School on Williamson Drive East within the 2017 and 2018 school year.
Few other details were provided about the case.
A suspect identified as Krystal Wilson, 31, of Whitby, has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference.
Police say Wilson was most recently working as a teacher at Roland Michner Public School on Ritchie Avenue in Ajax and is known commonly to students as "Krystal Clunis."
The Durham District School Board confirmed that the teacher in question has been placed on leave and will remain so until further notice.
According to the board, she was also previously employed at Vincent Massey Public School between 2016 and 2017, and Dr. SJ Phillips in Oshawa in the fall of 2017.
“Each school are sending communications home to parents and guardians today to provide an update,” the school wrote in a news release. “We will continue to work with our community partners until this investigation is concluded. All students and parents with information have been directed to contact the officer in charge of the investigation.”
Investigators want to ensure there are no other victims and are asking anyone with information related to the case to contact police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
