OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department arrested an Omaha Public Schools (OPS) staff member for an incident involving a child. The man taken into custody worked at Davis Middle School.

According to Douglas County Department of Corrections records, Todd Compton was booked at the corrections building last night for charges of sexual assault of a child. A website bio says he's a 7th Grade Administrator at Davis MS.

In an interview done with Project Harmony, the 15-year-old female victim said Compton inappropriately touched her dating back 4 years.

In a letter sent to Davis Middle School parents and staff, OPS says Compton has been placed on leave pending results of an investigation which was not related to Davis Middle School and that they are cooperating with police.

Compton does not have a court date set yet.
