CHARLES COUNTY, Md. -- (WGHP) -- A former middle school instructional assistant and track coach in Maryland was arrested Friday for allegedly sexually assaulting several male students, WRC-TV reports.
Carlos Deangelo Bell, 30, of Waldorf, Maryland, was indicted by a grand jury Friday on three counts of production of child pornography and two counts of second-degree assault.
Bell has told law enforcement he is HIV positive.
Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry told WRC-TV that at least 10 boys were victims and they were “mostly middle schoolers and pre-adolescent students.” The sheriff added that there may be more victims.
An investigation into Bell started in December 2016 when a parent noticed a suspicious text message on a child’s phone.
Child pornography was found Bell’s personal electronic devices, law enforcement said. One video appears to show Bell having sex with a child inside a middle school classroom.
Bell is being held without bond and additional charges are likely.
