A Baltimore County Public Schools teacher at Dundalk High School has been accused of assaulting at least two students, Baltimore County police said Thursday.
Police arrested Andrew L. Rader, 30, on Wednesday on two counts of second-degree assault against two Dundalk High School students, according to officials.
Police didn’t indicate the nature of the assault or the condition of the students in the release, but the school called it “deeply troubling” and a violation of its core values.
The administration was “made aware of allegations of inappropriate behavior” in April, school administrator Paul Satterfield told parents in a letter. Rader was then “immediately removed from the school and placed on administrative leave.”
“We were unable to share information with the community at that time due to the active police investigation,” Satterfield said. The art teacher was hired at Dundalk High School in August 2021. The school district is cooperating with police, the letter says.
Detectives are looking for more possible victims. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit at 410-887-7720.
