 EL MONTE — A custodian at a local elementary school is currently on paid administrative leave as police investigate allegations that he inappropriately touched a student earlier this year, police and school district officials said.
The alleged incident occurred April 25 at La Primaria Elementary School, 4220 Gilman Road, said El Monte police Detective Ernie Cramer.
The name of the custodian, a man in his 60s, was not released, he said. He has not been arrested.
The investigation involves “inappropriate touching above the clothes,” said Cramer.
A girl in the 3rd grade came forward and told school officials that the custodian had touched her inappropriately earlier in the day, Cramer said.
School officials immediately contacted the girl’s parents and the El Monte Police Department, he said.
Mountain View School District Director of Special Projects Alan Morier said it’s district procedure to place any employee being investigated by police on paid administrative leave.
